FRIDAY, NOV 1, 7:30PM, DEATH & WONDER
Join us for a Death & Wonder | an immersive multidisciplinary chamber concert.

Join us at a concert space transfigured by ambient sound and lights, and further enhanced with cocktails paired to the music.⁠

Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2 in E Minor, Opus 67⁠
Beethoven String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor, Opus 132⁠

Bela Horvath, Geneva Lewis, Jennifer Liu, violin⁠
Charles Galante, viola⁠
James Kim, Yi Qun Xu, cello⁠
Yoon Lee, piano⁠
Daniel Pattrow, production director⁠
Omar Zubair, sound design ⁠
Masha Tsimiring, light design⁠

In Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2—highly dissonant work packed with tension, woe, and at times, feelings of violence—Shostakovich lamented the premature death of his dear friend Ivan Ivanovich Sollertinsky. The last movement, also known as the “Dance of Death” movement, uses the “Jewish Dance” melody to a striking effect. Beethoven’s String Quartet Opus 132 was composed just two years before his death. The third movement “Song of Thanksgiving to the Deity,” is a powerful testament to Beethoven’s ability to transcend his afflictions into a musical offering.⁠

A BLACK NOVEMBER TURKEY by Corigliano 🦃🎻🦃🎻 "A Black November Turkey" gets its strange title from a Richard Wilbur poem. This savage barnyard allegory is set against an inane patter of clucking chickens (marked “with bitter sarcasm” in the score), and portrays sad and endless futility, a celebrated and unnoticed death.
