Carte Blanche Concert IV

Tara Helen O’Connor and Stephen Prutsman

The season’s final Carte Blanche Concert features flutist Tara Helen O’Connor and pianist and composer Stephen Prutsman in an enchanting selection of music spanning nearly three centuries. Beginning with Bach’s Sonata in g minor for Flute and Keyboard, the program traverses the Romantic era via Schubert and Fauré and arrives in the twenty-first century with music by Belinda Reynolds and the West Coast premiere of Prutsman’s own Voyage to the Moon.
