Pekka Kuusisto and Nico Muhly join forces for a special one-night only performance.
According to The Telegraph (London), Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto “surely has the most personal sound of any classical violinist now alive.” Composer-pianist Nico Muhly is one of the most celebrated and sought-after classical composers of the last decade and is the youngest composer ever commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera. These ground-breaking classical musicians join forces for a hallmark program of their own curating that combines the music of J.S. Bach with contemporary fare.
An immersive and meditative evening that promises work by Muhly (including “Drones and Violin”), Arvo Pärt, Bach (the Partita No. 2 in D Minor for Solo Violin, with the “Chaconne”), and Philip Glass (from the incidental music to Genet’s “The Screens”) Finnish folk and more.
