PROGRAM

John Adams, Shaker Loops (1978)
Julia Perry, Stabat Mater (1951)
Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Sinfonietta No. 1 (1955)
Jessie Montgomery, Starburst (2012)

The Gardner Museum's beloved Ensemble-in-Residence returns for this program of four American masterpieces, spanning six decades. After studying at Tanglewood and in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, composer Julia Perry developed into an important mid-century modern composer, although one too-little known during her own time and ours. A Far Cry will champion her moving Stabat Mater, along with John Adams's giddy and hypnotizing Shaker Loops. Named after the great Afro-British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson was a formidable musician, conductor, and composer who collaborated with artists as diverse as Max Roach, Marvin Gaye, Jerome Robbins, and Melvin van Peebles.
