Performance: Pyxis Piano Quartet – Continental Bridges
With the Museum’s beautiful Chihuly Bridge overhead, Pyxis turns to music that spans time and geography and links composers to their homeland. Joaquín Turina’s Piano Trio is filled with the fire of Spain, and Zoltán Kodály’s Intermezzo draws on his beloved Hungarian folk tunes. The evening’s major work is Dvořák’s justly famous and masterful Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major.
At 7:30 p.m., a Museum curator will present a 15-minute pre-concert talk. You are also welcome to arrive early for dinner and light fare in the Museum’s Thronson Café. The concert begin at 8:00 and will feature complimentary desserts and coffee at intermission.
Season tickets are $90 for Museum Members, $105 for Non-Members, and $75 for students with a valid ID.
Individual tickets are $30 for Museum Members, $35 for Non-Members, and $25 for students.
