we are the dreamers of dreams
October 16 - October 17, 2010
Music history is rich with pioneers, trailblazers who strike an individual path and compel us to listen in new and invigorating ways. Banned in Russia, long-forgotten in the west, Nikolai Roslavets developed a method of serial composition entirely independent of Schoenberg. Join us for a rare performance, and a celebration of five great visionaries.

Nikolai Roslavets, Sonata No. 1 for viola & piano
Béla Bartók, Sonata No. 2 for violin & piano
