Brass, Reeds, and Percussion: October 27, 2018

In 1887, Oscar Wilde wrote a novella about an American family that moved into an English castle haunted by the ghost of Sir Simon: “The Canterville Ghost.” The ghost had scared off a number of owners of the castle. But the Americans weren't scared off him; in fact, they were amused by his antics. When they heard his rattling chains, for example, they offered him lubrication to quiet the noise. Eventually, Virginia, the 15-year-old daughter of the family, befriended the ghost and helped him to make a peaceful transition. The Austrian composer Marcus Gotz has written a program piece based on the short story, which is featured on this edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion.
