The Kemyndable Flute Trio, Deborah Proulx, Amy Klein, and Kenneth Korn, return to the Library for an evening of music celebrating birds and their songs. The woods and wetlands directly behind the library are home to many birds, and the perimeter of the property is lined with birdhouses. The flute has a particular affinity to emulate bird songs. While the flute can play high and fast, it still is lyrical and melodic. Not surprisingly many composers have written works inspired by birdsong specifically for the Flute. The Kemyndable Trio will be performing some of the most successful works that capture the lyrical and flowing nature of birdsong. The following works will be performed:
- Trio in D for 3 Flutes F.A. Hoffmeister
- The Bird Fancyer’s Delight John Walsh
- Dance of the Hummingbirds Halpner
- The Cuckoo in the Forest (From Carnival of the Animals) Saint-Saens
- On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring Frederick Delius
- The Cuckoo and the Nightingale Gustav Mahler
- Birds Herman Beeftink
