The Pro Nova Ensemble features guest clarinettist AK Coope in the rarely
played Bernard Herrmann clarinet quintet, Souvenirs de Voyage. Herrmann is
best known as a film composer, particularly for Psycho and several other
Hitchcock films. This quintet is the last concert piece that he ever wrote.
Also on the program, the Bloch Prelude and Philip Glass’ luminous 5th
quartet, thought of by some as his best work for string quartet.
Admission is by donation.
The Pro Nova Ensemble will also perform the same program on April 10,
Wednesday, 7.30pm, at the Silk Purse Arts Centre in West Vancouver.
