Brazen Guns and Gentle Doves

To mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, the Cheah Chan Duo, consisting of vocalist Phillip Cheah and pianist Trudy Chan, will be performing a commemorative concert on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Billed as “musical ruminations on war and peace,” the program includes “War Scenes” by Ned Rorem, selections from “Le Tombeau de Couperin” by Maurice Ravel, and works by Leonard Bernstein, Francis Poulenc, George Butterworth, and Robert Savage. The ruminations will be literary as well, featuring the poetry of Walt Whitman, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Guillaume Apollonaire, and Louis Aragon put to music.
