The table is set, and you are invited to the feast. Come hungry… for great music. Founder and Artistic Director, Timothy Christie, will be joined by Festival Artists Maria Sampen, Meta Weiss, and special guests, Third Coast Percussion for an evening of unparalleled variety.
Beethoven headlines the first half with his ingenious String Trio in G Major, Op. 9, No. 1. Among Beethoven’s many musical innovations is the ability to transform a persistent rhythm into a musical theme. Just think of the Fifth Symphony, side 1, track 1.
What better way to celebrate rhythmic innovation than to welcome Third Coast Percussion to the stage. Called “sonically spectacular” by the Chicago Tribune, Third Coast Percussion champions the awe-inspiring music of John Cage, Steve Reich, George Crumb, Arvo Pärt, Gérard Grisey, Philippe Manoury, Wolfgang Rihm, Louis Andriessen, Toru Takemitsu, and Tan Dun, among others. Their set on the 2015 January Festival Series will rock the rafters of the Gesa Power House Theatre, and change the way you see chamber music forever.
