Songs of Resilience

CCMF presents Songs of Resilience (also at New Bern’s Bank of the Arts) showcasing the Calyx Piano Trio in works by James Lee III and Ludwig van Beethoven. Perhaps no composer better embodies the will to persevere in the face of personal crisis than Beethoven. Works by Beethoven open and close this concert—the spirited and searching Sonata for Violin and Piano Op. 30, No. 3 (written as the composer was grappling with deafness), and the Piano Trio Op. 1, No. 1 which is both reflective of the past and forward-looking.
Between these works by Beethoven, the trio will present the NC premiere of Tones of Clay by Baltimore-based composer James Lee III. Composed for the Calyx Trio through a Chamber Music America commissioning grant, this new work is a transformative exploration of both the discord and loving harmony existing between diverse members of the human race.

Mr. Lee will be on hand for a pre-concert discussion that begins at 6:30 pm. A champagne reception follows the concert.
