About This Performance

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program offers “exactly the type of concert that the classical scene needs more of” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). The second of three programs this season from classical music’s “life-giving spring” (New York Times) spotlights Kate Soper’s Only the Words Themselves Mean What They Say, a 2011 work for soprano and bass flute that employs Lydia Davis texts and virtuosic, idiosyncratic sounds to achieve new planes of expressivity and intensity.

Schubert: Notturno in E-flat Major, D. 987
Handel: Nel dolce dell’oblio
Soper: Only the Words Themselves Mean What They Say
Brahms: Piano Trio in B Major, Op. 8
