What a magnificent musical ride as we travel 200 years of music with Chants d’Auvergne - a collection of folk songs from the Auvergne region of France by Canteloube (1923) to Beethoven’s 7th Symphony (1813) - a work he conducted, and the audience demanded an encore of the famous “Allegretto” second movement. Then we skip forward 100 years to a premiere by Jennifer Butler with text by Tina Biello and performed by Marion Newman.
