Join us for this stunning chamber music performance in collaboration with New Muse Concerts inspired by Lasting Impressions: Japanese Prints from the Read-Simms Collection.

In a nexus of music, art, and poetry, these four composers exchange ideas and influences across cultures, mediums, eras, and geography. Rudolf Dittrich invokes Utagawa Hiroshige’s woodblock prints in his setting of Japanese folksongs for solo piano; Tōru Takemitsu takes his inspiration from poetry, creating a world of sound informed by the great impressionist composers; Somei Satoh finds a free, flowing lyricism that suspends time; Claude Debussy draws on traditional, modal scales to craft an evocative, sensual sonata that lives somewhere between East and West.

To allow for a safe experience for our guests, we’re offering two performances, both with limited seating.

Join us for a Saturday, July 10 | 5PM or a Sunday, July 11 | 3PM and enjoy this nexus of music, art, and poetry.
