The spectacular Lysander Trio will come to Ramapo to play a short Common-Hour concert prior to their performance at Carnegie Hall on March 14th. The program will feature piano trios by Schubert and Grandos as well as a new trio by Assistant Professor of Music Gilad Cohen. The concert will take place on March 6th at 1pm, host several music classes, and be open to the public.
Prof. Cohen’s piece Around the Cauldron was inspired by Shakespeare’s play Macbeth and is comprised of seven short scenes, each of which evokes a mood that resonates with an image of three witches gathered around a cauldron. Many of the piece’s themes were also featured in the music Cohen wrote for Ramapo Theater Program production of Macbeth in 2016.
