Musical Genius: Pundits & Puzzles

February 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

While we often celebrate music’s emotional expressiveness, this concert is all about compositional feats of intellectual genius! From the clockwork intricacy of Biber’s Battalia to Gulda’s bizarre orchestral ‘battle of the bands;’ from a dashed-off Mozart masterpiece that surprised even himself to a literal puzzle-piece by Knussen; these works comprise a dazzling showcase of the crystalline visions and inspired minds that could conceive such brilliance.
