Book of Mental Imagery
presented by Sonic Crossroads
Our program explores themes of tyranny and oppression with words by the wives of King Henry VIII and from the novel "Anna Edes" by Deszö Kostolanyi set to music by Libby Larsen and Kathryn Woodard (respectively). In between are works of fantasy and dreams as Karl Blench explores Kafkaesque worlds in "Book of Mental Imagery" and Erin Busch depicts the mental states between dreaming and waking in a solo piano work. Rounding out the program are three sonatinas by Ilhan Usmanbas who celebrates his 98th birthday on Oct. 23!
