About this show

Peter Flint, assisted by Avian Orchestra musicians Arash Amini (cello) and Andrew Sterman (woodwinds), offers up a melange of accordion chamber music, written both by him and by others. The program includes a series of short "etudes" and wordless songs that are contemplative, tender, mysterious, occasionally raucous, transporting, perhaps even funny and unique. As Peter puts his accordion skills on display and delves into new creative territory, listeners can expect a quirky and engaging musical evening that gleefully bounds across the stylistic borders between classical, jazz, folk, Latin, and more. Joao MacDowell, recording artist and composer of the Brazilian opera "Tamanduá," is joined by Jeremy Lamb (cello) and Uka Gameiro (percussion) for a concert of beloved Brazilian songs and chosen originals. The acoustic trio performs works from composers including Villa Lobos, Tom Jobim, Hermetto Pascoal, Luiz Gonzaga and Joao MacDowell.
