The final program in Festival of the Senses’ 2021–22 season will be presented at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, May 23, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 4106 JFK Boulevard in North Little Rock. A reception to meet the musicians will follow the performance, which will be livestreamed and available afterward online at www.facebook.com/frcarey. All Festival of the Senses events are free and open to the public, pandemic concerns permitting, thanks to the generosity of audience members, donors, sponsors, and grants from the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The final program in Festival of the Senses’ 2021–22 season features violinist Andrew Irvin and pianist May Tsao-Lim performing works by two African-American composers whose music, while celebrated in their lifetimes, was long lost to view, forgotten by the public until its recent rediscovery and rebirth. In contrast, the third composer, one of the kings of composition, achieved renown in his youth and continues to be widely played and celebrated today.
The program for “Lost and Found: Rediscovered Gems from the Classical Repertoire” is comprised of three works: the Sonata in G Minor for Violin and Piano, by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-George (1745–1799); Fantasie No. 1 for Violin and Piano in G Minor, by Arkansas native Florence Price (1887–1953); and the Violin Sonata in E Flat Major, by Richard Strauss (1864–1949).
