Electric Earth Concerts is delighted to present Now & Then: The Auréole Trio and soprano Ilana Davidson on Sunday, September 12 at 4:00 pm at the Old Meetinghouse in Francestown, New Hampshire.
The Auréole Trio returns to EEC to offer Now and Then, a concert of consolation and celebration. The program includes works by Monteverdi, Saint-Saëns, Golijov, Debussy, Earl Kim, Lennon/McCartney, and Carl Nielsen.
Auréole, the world-renowned chamber ensemble founded by Artistic Director and flutist Laura Gilbert, has been delighting audiences with imaginative and ground-breaking programs for over 25 years.
The touchstone of Auréole’s repertoire is Claude Debussy’s enormously influential Sonate (1916), in which the composer imagined an entire universe of new sounds. The work has since inspired many composers to create new repertoire for flute, viola and harp. Auréole has been a key player in this process, commissioning well over 100 pieces that range from renaissance and baroque transcriptions to works by some of today’s most gifted composers. Auréole is also passionate about pushing beyond traditional boundaries of classical music, and it has performed and recorded albums of The Beatles, Celtic, Latin and World music.
These consummate musicians, flutist Laura Gilbert, violist Mary Hammann, and harpist Stacey Shames, have a passionate desire to bring their remarkable repertoire—much of which they had a role in creating—to listeners throughout the world. With fourteen recordings in its discography, Auréole is the most widely recorded and best-known trio of its kind. Their yearly tours are a favorite of chamber music audiences, who have come to love and appreciate their dynamic artistry.
