A beguiling gem by Belgian composer Joseph Jongen opens this concert. Known principally for his contributions to organ repertoire, Jongen assimilated a range of European inspirations, studying briefly with Richard Strauss in Berlin, mingling with Fauré and d’Indy in Paris, and sojourning in Italy and England before settling as director of the conservatory in Brussels. Musical forces increase for Mazzoli’s cascading melodies in her Still Life with Avalanche, inspired by the death of a beloved cousin. Strings take over the second half of the program, performing Dvořák’s breakthrough Sextet, a composition which helped spread his fame across Europe.
