First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street

with guest artist Mary Mackenzie, soprano

Love and loss are at the center of this poignant program, extraordinary works that arose from tragedy: from Schubert’s ode to Beethoven, to George Crumb’s exquisite meditation on the nature of life and death, to Louis Vierne’s epic Piano Quintet, a rarely-heard, late-Romantic masterpiece written in response to the death of his son in World War I.
