Celebrate the conclusion of another sparkling season with an innovative blend of new and familiar works, from a popular classic to an exciting world premiere. Darius Milhaud reimagines the Biblical tale of Jacob and his fantastic dreams, and Chicago-based composer Sebastian Huydts, whose lyrical and accessible work captivated Rembrandt’s audiences in 2015, debuts a new trio inspired by symbolist poetry. Poulenc, a master of embodying Gallic wit and élan in music, captures the spirit of the flute, from sensuous to vivacious, in this pairing with piano. The evening concludes with a classic string trio by Beethoven.
