“All Worlds, All Times” spans compositions and arrangements from the 18th century through today, with works by Joseph Bologne de Saint-Georges, Valerie Coleman, Antonio Lauro, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Juan Bautista Plaza, and Florence Price, among others. The concert title comes from an etching on the Golden Record, which was sent into space in 1977 aboard the Voyager spacecraft to demonstrate the diversity of Earth’s culture to extra-terrestrials. The record contains Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Cavatina” from Op. 130, which also appears on the concert. Host Ivan Woods will introduce each piece and explore its inspirations throughout the program.
The evening’s performers are in high demand as chamber musicians throughout the greater Philadelphia area, appearing regularly with the Dalí Quartet, the Pyxis Piano Quartet, Philly POPS, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Ballet, the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra, the Iris Orchestra, the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, and Tempesta di Mare, among other ensembles.
