Guys and Dolls

Frank Loesser’s celebrated musical comedy about rolling the dice and falling in love under the bright lights of Broadway is considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy.

Set in a mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls tells the tale one Nathan Detroit – a guy who needs a venue for his “permanently established floating craps game.” Nathan’s best venue has just fallen through and he needs a chunk of change to underwrite an alternative option. For this he turns to Sky Masterson, a high roller who will bet on anything if the bet is fair and the stakes are high enough. Desperate for a sure thing, Nathan bets Sky that he can’t get a date with Sarah Brown, the earnest proprietor of the Save-a-Soul mission.

Things don’t quite go as planned, of course, though everything turns out just fine (as long as you consider two marriages, a trip to Havana, some saucy hot box numbers and a church mission turned into a gambling den to be “just fine”).  Along the way you are treated to some of composer Frank Loesser’s most memorable Broadway tunes, including “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,” “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” and the show-stopping “Luck be a Lady.”

Cras and Tchaikovsky

Breton composer Jean Cras led something of a double life: as a composer, particularly of chamber music and song, trained in Paris by Henri Duparc; and as an accomplished officer of the French navy, enabling him to travel the world extensively and imbibe diverse musical influences. These idioms are colorfully explored in his Quintette, especially in its hauntingly beautiful slow movement, and through the vivid plucked textures and swooping gestures of the finale. Finesse cedes to drama in the second part of tonight’s program, with Tchaikovsky’s epic, melodramatic Piano Trio, dedicated to “the memory of a great artist.”

June Han, harp • Youngha Kim, flute • Misha Vayman, violin • Carol Rodland, viola • David Requiro, cello

Piano Trio in A Minor, Op. 50
Ayano Ninomiya, violin • Amir Eldan, cello • Tao Lin, piano
