Featuring musicians from the world-renowned Gewandhaus Orchestra in a tailored string quartet, KLASSIK underground’s Saturday evening performance of Shifting Sounds will be a night of world class arts and music to savor.
Journeying through the metamorphosis of the string quartet in the twentieth century, curator and violist Tahlia Petrosian will be joined by fellow Gewandhaus Orchestra members to tackle works by Igor Stravinsky, Béla Bartók and Iannis Xenakis while accompanied by the lightbending visual worlds of VFX artist Joli Boardman.
Including musicians Yun-Jin Cho, Karl Heinrich Niebuhr, Tahlia Petrosian and Axel von Huene, enjoy this exploration into new territory as together they interrogate the moments where modernity and traditional musical forms collide.
KLASSIK underground is supported by Ulrike Klein AO.
