Music in Translation

  • Buntrock Hall 220 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60604 United States (map)

Join cellist and Civic Orchestra Fellow Nicky Swett, pianist and Civic Fellow Pei-Yeh Tsai and Chicago-area soprano Bahareh Poureslami for an exploration of the relationship between music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and music of the more distant past. Alongside works of J.S. Bach, György Ligeti, George Crumb, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Kenneth Lim, this program features a host of musical 'translations' that bridge the gaps between all of these musical styles.
