Sunday's musical attractions include world premieres and choral favorites
Sunday's music calendar is packed, as usual. Extra noteworthy are two programs occurring -- naturally -- at the same 3 p.m. time slot.
Works by notable Baltimore-based composers will be featured on a concert at An die Musik that combines the talents of ANALOG arts ensemble and the Monument Piano Trio, including Jonathan Leshnoff's "Song Without Words" for cello and piano. There will be world premiere of "Scenes from Eternity's Edge" for flute, violin, cello and piano by James Lee, III, and Rudolf Kamper's Music for Five Players. Rounding out the contemporary program are pieces by Michael Sheppard and Stuart Saunders Smith.
The other 3 p.m. enticement is
a concert by the Baltimore Choral Arts Society featuring two richly lyrical works, Schubert's Mass in G major and, from our own time, Morten Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna," which has become one of the most popular choral pieces in years. Here's a sampling of Lauridsen's score, performed by another group (of course, Choral Arts will do a much better job):
