CLASSICS: ART + MUSIC

Saturday, January 26, 2019 8:00pm

Event Description

26 JAN 2019 ::  Do you know the story? Mussorgsky wrote Pictures at an Exhibition after seeing an art exhibit of his friend Viktor Hartmann. The composer was so delighted by the artwork that he composed a piece based on the experience.

We turn the tables and ask artists to create new works of art with music as their inspiration. We promise a multi-sensory arts experience as we collaborate with artists from KyCAD. The program will include:

1.   GEORGE FRIDERIC HANDEL:  “Alla Hornpipe” from Water Music
2.  ROBERT SCHUMANN:  Symphony No. 3, (“Rhenish’), Mvt. 4
4.  MAURICE RAVEL:  “Apothéose: The Fairy Garden” from the Mother Goose Suite
5.  IGOR STRAVINSKY:  “Infernal Dance” from The Firebird
6.   BELA BARTÓK:  Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta, Mvt. 4
7.  CHARLES IVES: “The Housatonic at Stockbridge” from Three Places in New England
8.  MODEST MUSSORGSKY:  Night on Bald Mountain
