Hartford - Shostakovich & Gorey

What: Shostakovich & Gorey
Where: Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, 600 Main St., Hartford, CT
When: 3/4/2018 (Sunday), 2 p.m.
In celebration of the first exhibition to explore the artistic inspiration of the famed American artist and author, Edward Gorey, we delve into Gorey's Worlds for our March Sunday Serenades concert. For more than 50 years, Gorey delighted and amused audiences with spare pen and ink drawings that illustrate tales of hapless children, kohl-eyed swooning maidens, and whimsical creatures. The program will include Mozart's elegant and playful Sonata in E-flat Major, K. 292/196c, Schnittke's humorous Moz-Art, Britten's eerie Phantasy, and Shostakovich's melancholic Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 57. The Sunday Serenades Chamber Music Series is presented in collaboration with the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art as a musical counterpart to special exhibitions and the permanent collections. Concerts take place in the museum galleries, and feature Concertmaster and Sunday Serenades Artistic Director Leonid Sigal and Hartford Symphony Orchestra musicians. The Sunday Serenades Chamber Music Series is made possible, in part, by the Helen M. Saunders Charitable Foundation Music Endowment at the Wadsworth Atheneum.
