CABERNET CONCERT SERIES The Sound of Color
April 25, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Experience the bountiful hues of flute, saxophone and piano in this program dedicated to the prisms of sound and color. Alexander Scriabin’s mesmerizing Etude in C# minor highlights his obsession with the color of sound. Scriabin composed in a “counterpoint of light” – he heard sound as literal color, which is known as synesthesia. Alto in Violet, a Homage to Jimi Hendrix’s music for solo saxophone, electrifies this program by illuminating a bit of purple haze to our prism.
Rounding out the colorful music is Russell Peterson’s highly-charged Trio which incorporates jazz & classical + Pierre Sancan’s enchanting Sonatine for flute and piano and Charles Koechlin’s Epitaph for Jean Harlow is also featured reflecting his fascination for Hollywood and film.
