Classical Concert: Victor Cayres
Sunday, December 9, 2018
Brazilian-born and Boston-based pianist Victor Cayres makes his Crocker debut with a program that juxtaposes works by Chopin with those of Brazilian composers of the 19th and 20th century. The impact of European influence on the music, art, architecture, and culture of Brazil will be examined through the works of composers such as Leopoldo Miguéz and Cláudio Santoro, whose works encompass late romanticism, nationalism, and modernism in Brazilian piano music. An award-winning pianist who has performed as a soloist throughout the world, Cayres will offer a global perspective on classical music.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its 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 with no intermission and 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. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of select works from the Crocker’s permanent collection of European art, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
