The special guest for the occasion will be composer Elizabeth Bell who this season is celebrating her 85th birthday. Her charming and virtuosic Kaleidoscope for flute and piano will be heard for the very first time. Bell is a founder of New York Women Composers, Inc.
The program will also feature highly lyrical and accessible works by Argentinean Alberto Ginastera; Brazilians Ernesto Nazareth and Heitor Villa-Lobos; and Mexican Manuel M. Ponce. To round-off the program Ms. Hansen will perform a work especially written for her by Max
Lifchitz, the Mosaico Latinoamericano.
