concert 4: proud music of the storm

First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street

Sunday, April 23, 2017, 4 PM

First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street

Why is it that some of the most life-affirming art emerges from suffering or tragedy? The vital, energetic “gumboot dancing” of South Africa arose from the brutal conditions of apartheid-era gold mines, and Finzi’s buoyant Bagatelles raised the spirits of weary Londoners during World War II. Composed even as he struggled with increasing deafness, Beethoven’s rarely-heard string quintet shines with optimism and joy.
