On Monday, June 1, the Mountain Top Chamber players will return to the Jackson Public Library for a concert at 7:00 P.M. The program will focus on music from England with some side trips to Germany and France.
The program will start with an exquisite polyphonic work from the renaissance by William Byrd: the Kyrie from the Mass for Three Voices. The program will advance through English music history with a Canzona, or song by Thomas Morely called the Cricket. This piece is a tunefull depiction of crickets singing to each other on a summer night.
The main piece on the program is the Divertimento for recorder, flute and clarinet by Malcolm Arnold. Diversion and fun are the key words for this work with some bright dance sections a bit of a lullaby and a fanfare.
The program will also include some music for flute and piano by Debussy and a Tango so infectious that it’s called “ Tango Fatale”, by German Composer, Reiner Oberbeck
The program is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted at the door.
