"Of Beasts and Brutes"

  • American Church in Paris 65 Quai d'Orsay Paris, Île-de-France, 75007 France (map)

The Mirror Visions Ensemble (MVE) returns to the American Church in Paris for an evening of art song that playfully and seriously explores the animalizing (and humanizing) that can arise under the sway of beasts and brutes. This program includes works by Handel, André Caplet, Libby Larsen, Shostakovich, Federico García Lorca, Harry Somers, Saint-Saëns and others, and features four MVE commissions from composers Scott Wheeler, Richard Pearson Thomas, Francine Trester and Christopher Berg.
