Since none of us are doing much traveling these days, we thought we would bring the world to you. Philippe Gaubert’s impressionistic Three Watercolors capture the French countryside, while Victoria Kelly's evocative Goodnight Kiwi refers to an old New Zealand television signoff. Reena Esmail’s Saans (Breath) for Piano Trio brims with exotic flourishes from India, and Haydn’s “London” Symphony was written by a German for clamoring London audiences back in the 1790s. Composer Reena Esmail joins Artistic Director Marya Martin in a discussion of her work, and Gilles Vonsattel discusses Gaubert and the influence of the sea on his performances in Bridgehampton.
