PROGRAM NOTES:

“A Summer Evening with Friends” carries several meanings:  every selection has the word ‘summer’ in the title, starting with a little known piece by Roger Quilter, called Summer Evening, which starts the evening with a mellow, warm sound.  

Richard Killmer will join Tony on a contemporary piece for oboe and piano, by Austrian composer Albin Fries, which was inspired by the view of the Alps from Fries’ summer home.  

After, he will play a set of pieces by British composer Arthur Hinton, called A Summer Pilgrimage in the White Mountains, which have not been performed since their premier by Hinton’s wife in New York in the 1920s.

Following, will be a set of jazz pieces, performed by ‘the friends’ in the program title:  

Kristen Shiner McGuire, drums and vocals

Fumi Tomita, bass

Mark Kellogg, trombone

Howard Potter, vibes

In addition, there will be short poems read to set the mood for the Quilter and Hinton pieces by Tony’s Yoga instructor, Teresa Principe.
