This program, called Mythic Dramas of Judith Shatin, will feature Tower
of the Eight Winds and Icarus. Both of these dramatic pieces offer
journeys inspired by mythic topics: Icarus and the Greek gods of the
winds. The composer notes that the myth of Icarus seems an apt metaphor
for the creative process: the attempt to transcend, and the riskiness
of the endeavor. The story of the escape of Daedalus, noted for his
wonderful sculptures, together with his son Icarus is a compelling one
that has inspired many artists to attempt their own interpretive flights.
Tower of the Eight Winds, named for the Tower of the Winds, still standing
below the Acropolis in the ancient Roman agora in Athens, soars windward,
reflecting the gods of the winds depicted in friezes at the tower's top.
At the time of its premiere the Washington Post said: '...Judith Shatin's
"Tower of the Eight Winds," ... stood out for its acuity and engaging
Other works on the programs will be W.A. Mozart's Sonata K.454 and
Franck's Sonata in D Minor.
