Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More
The evening features medieval music vocalist Susan Hellauer of Anonymous 4 and Aruna Sairam, one of India's most respected Carnatic vocalists, accompanied by Lebanese-American percussionist Jamey Haddad. Gerard Edery of Morroco, a classically trained baritone, is considered one of the leading interpreters of Sephardic song and has performed at major venues and festival throughout North America. For this performance, he will be accompanied by Zafer Tawil (from Palestine) on oud, and Haddad on percussion. The Daqqa of Taroudant are Morrocan craftsmen and keepers of Sufi traditions dating back to the 8th century. They combine music, chant, dance and percussion into performances that are important religious and social events in the city of Taroudant.
