from the realm of light & song: Barber, Rouse, Beethoven
October 1, 2011
Chameleon opens its 2011-2012 season with reverence, light, and three genuine blockbusters: Christopher Rouse's luminous tribute to Rome, filled with the sound of the great city's bells, Barber's setting of the private reflections of Medieval Irish monks who speak in surprisingly modern terms about their lives, and the crowning masterpiece of Beethoven's piano trios.
