Smadbeck – Rhythm Song
Evans – Two movements for violin and marimba
Persichetti – Serenade No. 6
Stravinsky – The Soldier’s Tale
Join the musicians of the Naples Philharmonic for an eclectic program celebrating chamber music’s most unexpected instrumentation. The final Wang Chamber Music Series concert of the season kicks off with two popular pieces for marimba, followed by Vincent Persichetti’s Serenade No. 6. Persichetti’s work is notable for bringing together three uncommon collaborators—trombone, viola and cello. The series concludes with Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, a Faustian tale composed for a septet of instruments and a small ensemble of actors and dancers.
