Quotes & Highlights
Join Symphony Space’s Associate Artistic Director Laura Kaminsky for a pre-performance Underscore discussion, beginning one hour before showtime.
Join the New Millennium Ensemble and award-winning pianists Ursula Oppens and Jerome Lowenthal as they celebrate the centennial of the renowned composer, organist, and ornithologist, Olivier Messiaen. Such musicians as Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and French composer Pierre Boulez have cited Messiaen as a major influence on their work.
Messiaen found birdsong fascinating, believing birds to be the greatest musicians. He notated birdsongs worldwide, and incorporated birdsong into the majority of his music. His piece based entirely on the song of the blackbird, Le merle noir, will be performed by New Millennium Ensemble.
They will also perform the monumental Quartet for the End of Time, composed and performed while Messiaen was incarcerated as a prisoner of war in a Silesian labor camp in 1941.
Grammy Award-nominated pianist Ursula Oppens and international prize-winning pianist Jerome Lowenthal will perform Visions de l’Amen, Messiaen’s piece for two pianos that was inspired by the Revelation of St. John the Divine.
