Like us, many composers experienced periods in which their work was interrupted by their life. This recital presents pieces by Gabriel Fauré, the conservatory administrator who relegated composing to the summer months; Ralph Vaughan-Williams who, like many composers, ceased to write during the Great War; Johannes Brahms, who had decided to retire from composition until inspired by clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld to continue; and Peter Lieberson, whose diagnosis of a severe form of cancer, dulled his will to write. Production after disruption. A challenge for composer and commoner alike.
