From the most compressed musical eloquence to the most expansive timelessness of musical expression, this concert juxtaposes a wonderful assortment of musical works that push the boundaries of our experience of time. Gyorgy Kurtag’s Microludes and Olivier Messiaen’s Quatuor pour le Fin du Temps (Quartet for the End of Time), complemented by Gabriel Fauré’s luxurious piano trio, fill out a mostly French evening.
Note: This concert will be preceded by a 7:00 p.m. performance given by participants in Birdfoot’s Chamber Music Mentoring Program.
Concert-goers may enjoy dining downstairs before the concert. Valet Parking is available until 11 pm.
