A Kiss in the Dark
Samantha Sack

Composer Samantha Sack seeks to recreate a feeling that many people know but are unable to express in her intimacy-centered orchestral work. Rooted in themes of love and trust, this piece conjures the euphoric emotions that surface when finding that special someone upon reaching out into the dark.

“Even seemingly specific emotions feel completely different from person to person; sometimes from listen to listen for the same person. If my work resonates with someone, I want to cherish what it means to them and how it makes them feel.”

Caucasus Sonata III: Romance
Mark G. Simon

Performed by acclaimed pianist Anna Kislitsyna, composer Mark G. Simon’s Caucasus Sonata III: Romance is as deeply moving as it is playful, covering the broad palette of emotion that a romantic encounter can invoke. From its lush and tender opening to the spiraling glissando at its conclusion, a compelling romantic arch begs to be explored.

“I think the sonata encompasses everything I’d experienced in my life, all the complex, even contradictory feelings I had about life, and about music… I’ve waited 27 years to hear it actually performed by human fingers.”
