Unison Media and The Green-Wood Historic Fund are presenting an all-new series of classical music concerts titled The Angel’s Share, to be performed in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. The season will run from June 2018 through October 2018.
The Washington Post writes of twin sister piano duo Christina and Michelle Naughton, “They have to be heard to be believed.” And indeed, the pair performs with an almost inconceivably telepathic connection. For The Angel’s Share, the Naughtons will play a program bookended by Leonard Bernstein compositions, in celebration of his 100th birthday year (and because his final resting place is but a short walk from the Catacombs). In between, the sisters will alternate between American and French composers, including Ravel’s shimmering Ma mère l’Oye and Debussy’s En Blanc et Noir.
The Program: Bernstein: “Overture to Candide;” Ravel: Ma mère l’Oye; Nancarrow: Sonatine; Poulenc: Sonata for Four Hands; Bolcom: Recuerdos; Debussy: En Blanc et Noir; Copland: “El Salon” arranged by Bernstein
The Performers: Christina Naughton, piano; Michelle Naughton, piano
