Claiming a wide territory for their unusual medium, Strata traverses a world of sounds. From the rural, folkloric style of Aram Khachaturian to the urbane wit of Jean Françaix; from the English Pastoralism of Rebecca Clarke’s duo for clarinet and viola to the joyful eclecticism of Karim Al-Zand’s Stomping Grounds—which draws its inspiration from such diverse sources as Baroque ground bass, music of the African “thumb piano” and “stop time” jazz—this program delivers a generous helping of diverse delights.


Aram Khachaturian: Trio for clarinet, violin, and piano
Rebecca Clarke: Prelude, Allegro, and Pastorale


Karim Al-Zand: Stomping Grounds 
Jean Françaix: Trio for clarinet, viola and piano
