“Every culture has its images of paradise,” writes Maine composer Robert Sirota, “all of which include the sights and sounds of birds.” It is from birdsong that Sirota drew inspiration for his 2008 work, performed tonight with faculty artist Linda Chesis. Birds of Paradise is bookended by Ravel’s sensitive tribute to Classical form, and, on the second half, by Schubert’s first grand Piano Trio, among the formidable flood of compositions penned by the composer in his final year.
