Für Elise...On Edge Presented by Kaleidoscope MusArt


Für Elise...On Edge Presented by Kaleidoscope MusArt

This program of piano music takes the listener on a journey to the outer edges of the human mind. Works that give free reign to the polarities of creative genius are heard alongside works that take a detailed look at specific psychological phenomena. Beethoven's famous Für Elise and his career-spanning Bagatelles op. 119 are performed along with Schumann's monumental Fantasy in C major, which was inspired by an original song of Beethoven’s.


Juxtaposed with these pillars of the piano repertoire are three intense sound constructions of musical modernism: "Suicide in an Airplane" by Leo Ornstein, “Pandorum” by Scott Stinson, and "Hypochondriasis” by Nahyun Kim. Kim's work is one of the winning compositions of KMA’s 2018 Call for Scores for Emerging Women Composers.


The program will be performed by pianists Akina Yura, Maria Sumareva, Redi Llupa, and Inesa Gegprifti .

Youth under 18 enters with free admission.
