Sandwiched Twixt Bottesini & Shostakovich

Don McIver kindly invited me to read at the Chatter program at 10:30 am on June 17th. As is customary, I will be presenting poems between the two musical numbers. Giovanni Bottesini’s Gran Duo for clarinet, double bass, and piano and Dmitri Shostakovich’s String Quartet no. 15 in E-flat minor, op. 144 will be performed by James Shields, clarinet; Emily Cole and David Felberg, violins; Laura Steiner, viola; James Holland, cello; Toby Vigneau, bass; and Luke Gullickson, piano.
