Bach, Takemitsu, Elgar

Takemitsu’s soft spoken Toward the Sea was written originally for Greenpeace’s ‘Save the Whales’ campaign in 1981, performed here in its arrangement for alto flute and harp. Drawing upon Herman Melville, the work includes movements titled ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Cape Cod’. The atmosphere of Elgar’s Piano Quintet, meanwhile, conjures a more foreboding atmosphere – ‘wonderful’ and ‘weird’, as Alice Elgar wrote, ‘evidently reminiscent of sinister trees…’

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH
Trio Sonata in G Major, BWV 1038
Adam Sadberry, flute • Janet Sung, violin • Edward Arron, cello • Tao Lin, harpsichord

T?RU TAKEMITSU
Toward the Sea III
Laura del Sol Jiménez, alto flute • June Han, harp

EDWARD ELGAR
Piano Quintet in A Minor, Op. 84
Itamar Zorman, Janet Sung, violin • Liz Freivogel, viola • Keiko Ying, cello • Ran Dank, piano
