Professor of violin James Stern and pianist Audrey Andrist perform the world-premiere of a composition by Dana Wilson titled Of my dream before me…. This piece was inspired by the Langston Hughes poem "As I Grew Older." Rounding out the program will be works by Mozart, William Grant Still and Grażyna Bacewicz.

Grażyna Bacewicz: Sonata No. 4

I. Moderato. Allegro non troppo
II. Andante ma non troppo
III. Scherzo. Molto vivo
IV. Finale. Con passione


Dana Wilson: Of my dream before me… (World-Premiere Performance)
