Settlement Music School Pierre Jalbert’s Light, Line, Shadow was created in response to Edward Hopper’s iconic Road and Trees, a painting donated to the Philadelphia Museum of Art by long-time Network friend and supporter Daniel W. Dietrich II -- the premiere performance was dedicated to Dan. The piece was made possible by a grant from the Fromm Music Foundation and the Presser Foundation Special Projects grant.

The Sounds of Light and Shade concert also featured other image-based music like Ingrid Arauco’s Vistas (flute and piano) and, as a special tribute to Joan Tower on her 80th birthday, Wild Purple for solo viola. Morton Feldman’s proto-minimalist work Piano Piece (to Philip Guston), and Anna Weesner’s chimerical trio, Light and Stone, completed the program.
