Modern classical music composer Frederick Adler presents the world premiere of his compositions based around the poem Paterson by William Carlos Williams.

Future concerts will be in New Jersey and New York in June.

“The Run to the Sea” is an instrumental trio for clarinet, cello, and piano featuring clarinetist Sarah Bonomo, cellist Samsun van Loon and pianist Fred Adler. inspired by the fourth book of Paterson; and it will be performed with visual art created by Jonathan Sinagub. The trio and visual art will accompany soprano Alexandra Sessler in a performance of “Thalassa,” an extended song based on an excerpt from the same fourth book. Adler will accompany soprano Katherine Sundstrom in his setting of “The Descent of Winter,” and poems from the second book of Paterson. Finally, the instrumental trio will play “Mexico: Images,” inspired by Adler’s 2015 visit to Mexico City and Chiapas, with visuals by Minka Lisle as arranged by Jonathan Sinagub.
