Last night was the first of ICE’s Stravinsky concerts at the Morgan Library. I’m so proud of the group–everyone played with great finesse, and we got a wonderful reception from the crowd. The Septet was the only piece with piano, and I grew to love the piece’s angular beauty and emotional reserve. Next week: the complete songs! Tony Arnold flies into town this weekend and we resume our work on some of Stravinsky’s great songs for voice and piano.
