with every brilliant hue
February 12 - February 13, 2011
Musicians speak of color almost as much as painters, and Ravel’s vivid palette has been an inspiration to nearly every composer since. Steven Stucky invokes the great colorist Paul Klee, and Kaija Saariaho’s spectral analysis of sound has led her to develop a unique, rigorous musical idiom that is undeniably sensual, eloquent and lyrical.
