SAMPLE PROGRAMS

An exploration of the many paths one takes to “come home.” Inspired by the incredible true stories of composers in their search for truth, family, identity, country, and life itself, District5 brings together the music and passion that binds us all together in our search for what it truly means to “come home.”

Zemlinsky: Humoresque

Ruth Crawford Seeger: Suite for wind quintet

Chopin: Selections from Preludes op. 28 (trans. Plylar) 

Clara Schumann: Variations on a Theme by Robert Schumann, op. 20 (trans. Plylar)

Grieg: Lyric Pieces, op. 43 (trans. Plylar)

Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 26 in E-flat, op. 81a "Les Adieux" (trans. Rumzis)

A beautiful and haunting program of works by Barber, Leclaire, Tomasi, and Chopin. Be transported by music that clings to memory, is haunted by mortality, or merely explores the unfettered realm of imagination.
