Connecting in the Chamber
Present Music presents a series of four concerts in Milwaukee, February 19-21
Composers to be performed: J.S. Bach, Gesualdo, Maurice Ravel, W.A. Mozart, Igor Stravinsky, Harry Partch, Sofia Gubaidulina, Bruce Adolphe, Kamran Ince
Come together as PM connects the old and the new in a series of intimate concerts at three unique locations. Experience the virtuosity of Ravel and Mozart as performed by Grammy-nominated pianist and PM ensemble member Cory Smythe. Hear the rhythmic vitality of Stravinsky, Bruce Adolphe, and John Zorn, the surprising modernity of Gesualdo, the wild and at times serene music of Kamran Ince, the austere beauty of Harry Partch, and the reflections of Sofia Gubaidulina.
“Modern music often has a strong connection to the past,” states Present Music artistic director Kevin Stalheim. “It’s fascinating to see what our living composers are inspired by and hear it alongside the old stuff.” Join us as we bring the past and present together in unconventional ways. (Program subject to change.)
Single tickets ($25 and $35, $80 for the house concert) are available at www.presentmusic.org or at (414) 271-0711. Season subscriptions are available and range from $80 – $240.
