Emotions Behind the Music

  • Orem Public Library 58 North State Street Orem, UT, 84057 United States

An "Orem Reads" concert, inspired by Terry Tempest Williams book, "Refuge".

Aspen Winds will perform for you works by three composers: Carl Nielsen, who drew upon his love of nature and his relationships with his friends to write his Wind Quintet; Paul Hindemith, who used his feelings to push music in a new direction as demonstrated in Kleine Kammermusik; and, Maurice Ravel, who created music to celebrate the lives of several friends in his masterpiece Le tombeau de Couperin.

Aspen Winds presents a program of music for which the inspiration was drawn from events that happened in each composer's life. Regardless of the events, the music will impart an energy and a passion that will make you happy to be a person who can feel various, intense emotions.
