Judith Shatin’s Gabriel’s Wing for Flute and Piano Presented on June 14 and 15 in Visegrad and Budapest, HungaryPosted by s21concerts in Concert Announcement
Judith Shatin’s Gabriel’s Wing for flute and piano will be performed by flutist Lisa Bost and pianist Eva Polgar on Saturday, June 14 – 7:00 PM at the Calvinist Church in Visegrad, Hungary and on Sunday, June 15 – 6:00 PM at FUGA, Architecture Centrum in Budapest, Hungary.
The composer writes, “Gabriel’s Wing was inspired by the Biblical Gabriel, one of the Archangels, a messenger of God. The music features resonant harmonic series that are associated with the music of the spheres as well as soaring melodic lines that embody images of flight. The flute represents Gabriel, the piano the medium through which the angel moves and speaks.” Read the complete notes for the piece at http://judithshatin.com/gabriels-wing/.
