ABOUT THIS EVENT
The French anthropologist and ethnologist Claude Lévi Strauss wrote that the invention of melody is “the supreme mystery in the sciences of man.” This concert celebrates the creation of melody through two works from different historical periods. We’ll hear two concerti: the early 18th century Concerto in D Major by Antonio Vivaldi, and from the pen of British composer Richard Harvey, the thrilling and virtuosic Concerto Antico. Rounding out the program are Derek Keller’s Three Pieces for Piano and Astor Piazzolla’s haunting Oblivio
