Troy SB Music Hall Music at Noon: Inna Leoni, flute with Cheryl Humes, piano | Roussel, Gluck, Reniecke, Debussy, Jolivet

Tuesday, October 10th 2017 at 12:00 pm

Since 1988, on the second Tuesday of each month, The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall’s free Music at Noon concert series has highlighted the work of exceptional regional musicians with a diverse mix of musical styles. This performance by Russian-American flutist Inna Leoni with collaborative pianist Cheryl Tennant Humes opens the 2017-18 Music at Noon series at the Music Hall.

The flute, the oldest-known musical instrument in the world, has been a means for human artistic expression since prehistoric times. Capable of producing sounds that mesmerize snakes, birds, other animals as well as humans, the flute in Greek mythology has played a major role. To the ancient Greeks, music manifested the rightness of the cosmos and was connected in pursuit of truth and beauty as well as providing a conduit for healing and purifying the body and mind and changing the hearts of people. Throughout the history of Western music especially in the Romantic period followed by the Impressionism, one of the most growing inspirations was ancient Greece and its culture. In this program Greek Gods and other mythological creatures are present in the compositions.

The works on the program:

  • Albert RousselJoueurs de Flûte, Op. 27
  • Christoph Gluck — “Dance of the Blessed Spirits” from Orphéce et Euridice, Wq. 30
  • Carl Reinecke  — Sonata “Undine,” Op. 167
  • Claude DebussyPrélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, L. 86
  • André JolivetChant de Linos (1944)

Remember for the Music at Noon concerts, The Hall opens at 11:00 am. So, bring your lunch and come listen to some great music!
