“Once upon a time…” opens the door to tales of impossible things and wondrous adventures; it is an equally apt beginning for this concert, in which we’ll hear such stories explored and depicted through music. Schumann’s Märchenbilder (‘Fairy Tale Pictures’) is a set of charming character pieces, while Shih-Hui Chen’s programmatic work Returning Souls introduces us to the legends of the Amis people of Taiwan. More a saga than fable, Mendelssohn’s second viola quintet is replete with drama, exuberance, and pathos – all the elements of a gripping narrative.

Shih Hui Chen (b. 1962) ‘Returning Souls’ Four Short Pieces on Three Formosan Amis Legends
