EMOTIONS BEHIND THE MUSIC

  • Provo Public Library 550 North University Avenue Provo, UT, 84601 United States

Family Night at the Provo Library, celebrating human emotions.

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 that you are a person who can feel these intense emotions.
