Solace: A Lyric Concerto - UNCSA Wind Ensemble

  • Stevens Center 405 W. 4th St. Winston-Salem, NC USA (map)

Faculty Artist Robert Young joins the Wind Ensemble for the North Carolina premiere of Joel Love’s “Solace: A Lyric Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Wind Ensemble,” a work the composer describes as being “inspired by selected meaningful texts that deeply engage with lyricism.” Also on the program is Percy Grainger’s timeless classic “Lincolnshire Posy,” a musical portrait of six folk songs that mimic the unique stylizing of the local musicians who “sang so sweetly to me.”
