Masked Sounds

A melody can wear multiple masks, shaping its original purpose. Chopin's music may present a pleasant and romantic facade, but deep inside, the musicians will whisper their secrets. Janacek's 'Pohádka' spins folkloric tales, concealing profound pain. Then Weber's Trio weaves a tapestry of musical mysteries. A contemporary twist awaits with Cole Reyes' 'Other Suns,' pushing the boundaries of tradition, concluding with Scriabin's tender 'Romance.' 'Masked Sounds' invites you to an evening where melodies take on cryptic personas, leaving you enchanted, entranced, and immersed in their secrets long after the final note fades away. ⁠
