Pianist Delores Stevens, horn player Richard Todd and violinist Debra Price presented four chamber works Thursday evening for the opening concert of Pacific Serenades' third season. Taking place in the ornate, at times noisy, Crystal Room of the Biltmore Hotel, the concert included the world premiere of Roger Bourland's "Recent Dreams," a fantasy for this combination of instruments. "Recent Dreams" makes few bold statements, shying away from any new frontiers of music-making.
