Sunday, May 19, 1 p.m. talk, 2 p.m. concert, Hartford Symphony Orchestra Sunday Serenades Series: The Spanish Golden Age, Wadsworth Atheneum, 600 Main St., Hartford. Sunday Serenades single tickets are $30 each; $25 for HSO subscribers. Sunday Serenades artistic director, concertmaster; Patricia Daly Vance violin; Peter Zay cellist; Edward R. Rozie, Jr. bass and Margreet Francis piano. Taking up portraiture as well as allegorical and religious subjects, Spanish painters emphasized the drama of both religious climax and common every day moments. Gustav Mahler's Piano Quartet in A minor is an early work that exhibits the composer's ability to create highly emotional soundscapes. Kaija Saariaho's eerily beautiful Aure is breathy and wispy, while JoaquĆ­n Turina's lush, radiant Circulo depicts Spanish bullfights and Flamenco dancers. Commonly referred to as the "Trout," Schubert's Piano Quintet in A Major, D. 667 features a set of variations on the composer's earlier vocal work "The Trout." This spirited chamber work showcases Schubert's lush, yet graceful compositional style and forward-thinking use of chromaticism. Sunday Serenades chamber music concerts are presented in collaboration with the Wadsworth Atheneum as a musical counterpart to special exhibitions and the permanent collections. The Sunday Serenades chamber music series is made possible, in part, by The Saunders Foundation Music Endowment at the Wadsworth Atheneum. Anniversary Lead Sponsor is the Richard P. Garmany Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The 75 Anniversary Season Supporting Sponsor is Cly-Del Manufacturing Co. HSO programs are funded part by the Greater Hartford Arts Council's United Arts Campaign, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, and with support from the Department of Economic and Community Development, Connecticut Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
