As you know from previous posts, we are fans of the Astoria Music Society around here. They are a terrific organization and produce a variety of concerts that feed the soul. Their new (9th) season is almost upon us, too, and they are starting it out with a concert by their new music group, the Lost Dog New Music Ensemble.

They’ll be performing on Thursday, October 20 at Waltz-Astoria. The concert will include Hurel’s Opcit, Bodin’s Poétique des Fluides, and Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du temps. The “Quartet for the end of time” is a true 20th century masterpiece and should not be missed. It’s a gorgeous, otherworldly piece, and was premiered in a POW prison camp during World War II.

Performing these pieces will be Laura Barger, piano; Emily Brausa, violoncello; Miranda Cuckson, violin; Thomas Piercy, clarinet. They are all excellent musicians, so you are in for a treat with this performance.
