    Daniel Godfrey’s From a Dream of Russia for clarinet, violin and piano is paired with Glinka’s Trio Pathetique and Rick Sowash’s Daweswood Suite as well as music of Gliere and Maude Powell for a special afternoon of Russian and American music. Professional cinematographer/editor of PilotGirl Productions, Sonja Stark, has compiled a beautiful montage that will complement the Godfrey. Her video footage and photographs were shot during her many trips to Russia with the Albany-Tula Alliance. Stark is the Public Relations Committee Chair for the sister-city organization. The Dawes Arboretum has supplied stunning images to accompany the Daweswood Suite. We are delighted, as well, to have composer Daniel Godfrey join us for this unique concert with a pre-concert talk at 2:30pm. Musicians of Ma’alwyck core members Ann-Marie Barker Schwartz and Petia Kassarova are joined by guest artists Paul Green, clarinet and Noah Palmer, piano. Tickets $25/10.
