Our Season Opener is visionary and visual. See the art which inspired the music. Then enter a gallery where the line is blurred. To Scriabin, colors and notes were inseparable (a rare condition called Synethesia). But his idea for a “symphony of light and sound” was ahead of its time. More than a century later, we’ve teamed up with a scholar and an award-winning lighting designer to produce the multi-sensory piece the composer envisioned. And, you’ll see it LIVE!
Adam Neiman was only eleven at his concerto debut. Now, decades later, we’ve paired the virtuoso with one of the greatest piano compositions of all time. Phenomenal. Then, we’ll perform the same piece again, but wrapped around Ravel’s lush orchestral arrangement. You’ll feel as if you’ve heard an entirely different composition. Transforming.
Moussorgsky | Pictures at an Exhibition
