Classical Concert: Faythe Vollrath
April 9, 2017
In celebration of the exhibitions JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876-1970, and Into the Fold: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Horvitz Collection, harpsichordist Faythe Vollrath has created a program of contemporary compositions by Japanese and Japanese American composers that honors and challenges the distinctive sounds of the harpsichord, a traditionally Baroque instrument. Included in the program will be works by Japanese American composer Asako Hirabayashi, who brings a blend of East and West tonalities to her music. This concert will be a rare aural experience. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of the exhibitions JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876-1970, and Into the Fold: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics from the Horvitz Colection to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
