“evocative, cathartic, and simply ravishing”
– The Boston Musical Intelligencer


  • Lili Boulanger, D’un matin de printemps for flute & piano (1918)
  • Augusta Read Thomas, Rumi Settings for violin & viola
  • Aaron Copland, Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson for soprano & piano
  • Joseph Schwantner, Music of Amber for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano & percussion
  • Maurice Ravel, Piano Trio in a minor

Music and poetry are natural companions, following language and cadence to express inner worlds. Copland’s lustrous settings perfectly capture the lyrical rhythms of Emily Dickinson, Augusta Read Thomas channels a 900-year old verse, and Ravel adopts a form of Malaysian poetry for his magnificent Piano Trio.

Chameleon's fall 2017 programs are supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.   NEA Art Works
