DUO Stephanie and Saar: one piano, four hands
Sunday, August 13, 2017
The works featured in the exhibition Full Spectrum: Paintings by Raimonds Staprans showcase the beauty and drama of Staprans’ use of a single theme: still life. To extraordinary effect, duo Stephanie and Saar take inspiration from Staprans in a program featuring Bach’s The Art of Fugue, which also explores a single theme with astonishing variety. Playing together on a single piano, Stephanie and Saar captivate with the complex and haunting masterpieces Bach composed at the end of his life. Included in the program will be the composer’s very last fugue, which he mysteriously left unfinished, confounding generations of scholars. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented
it’s Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians
and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts that draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and
offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to
contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music
Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly,
talent and musicianship.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of the exhibition Full Spectrum: Paintings by Raimonds Staprans to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
