Chelsea Music Festival - Beethoven All Night

  • St Paul's German Lutheran Church

From the CMF Website:

Ludwig van Beethoven’s impact on all of our lives, regardless of background, is tremendous. From descriptors such as “revolutionary,” “romantic” or “madman,” his life and music continue to fascinate, puzzle and mesmerize those who encounter it. This evening, from 6pm until midnight, experience a multi-faceted exploration on Beethoven.  Through music, food, visual art and talks, we focus on his obsession with the metronome and mission to understand the pulse of time.

Verona Quartet Carte Blanche @ Chelsea Music Festival - Ravel, Beethoven and a World Premiere

  • St. Paul's German Lutheran Church

The Festival’s annual Carte Blanche event allows the 2017 Ensemble-in-Residence full artistic freedom in creating a program that highlights its reflection on the Festival theme, “Measuring Time.”

At the center of the program is the World Premiere performance of a string quartet from Etudes & Lullabies by Composer-in-Residence Sebastian Currier, commissioned by the Chelsea Music Festival as part of a world-wide, multi-year commissioning project. The string quartets of Maurice Ravel and Ludwig van Beethoven that flank the premiere, are milestones in the string quartet repertoire composed at opposite ends of the 19th century.

A curated reception will follow the performance.
