Juventas New Music Ensemble, Featuring Hornist Anne Howarth, Premieres Canta la Sal

January 27 @ 8:00 pm

$1 – $35

Canta la Sal, scored for horn, cello and piano, was inspired by initial discussions with hornist Anne Howarth followed by Pablo Neruda’s vivid poem Oda a la sal, and is a phrase from that poem. It is a co-commission of Anne Howarth,  the Juventas New Music Ensemble and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee and is funded in part by the Meir Rimon Commissioning Assistance Program of the International Horn Society. The Neruda poem speaks eloquently of salt, its connection to the sea and to life, to its song as it is mined and as it moves through the entire chain of life. Salt is necessary for life, yet can destroy it, as in the siege of Carthage, or through the malfunction of our own bodies. We laugh and cry and shed salty tears. Salt is within us and of us. The cost of tickets ranges from $1-$35, with the goal of accessibility for all.
