Billy Childs – String Quartet No. 3 “Unrequited”
Adolphus Hailstork – St. Paul’s Blues for Solo Flute (world premiere)
Johannes Brahms – Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115

At the center of this program is Billy Childs’ emotionally stirring third string quartet titled “Unrequited”. Childs wrote this work as a response to composer Leoš Janáček’s Intimate Letters, a piece in which Janáček memorialized his unrequited infatuation with a younger married woman. Also featuring SPCO flutist Alicia McQuerrey giving the world premiere of a new work by Adolphus Hailstork as well as exquisite Romantic works by Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms, this program drips with melancholy and yearnings of love unreturned and unfulfilled.

The broadcast will take place at 2pm Central / 12pm Pacific.
