Saturday, Oct. 6: 6:30 artist talk and 8 p.m. concert, Peristyle
The Toledo Museum of Art welcomes genre-defying artist Harold Budd to its classical concert hall and galleries for a one-of-a-kind artist residency.
This legendary ambient/avant-garde composer and performer will give a rare public performance, including the world premiere of Petits Souffles – a new work for piano, celeste, and string quartet, the six parts of which were inspired by visual art from the first half of the 20th century – as well as other newly-composed and reworked pieces for keyboard and string ensemble and compositions from early in his career. Come early for a very special pre-concert talk, included in the ticket price, as Budd shares the visual inspiration behind Petits Souffles.
This concert is supported in part by Robert and Rose Wagner and the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music of the College of Musical Arts at BGSU. Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund.
Tickets are $15 for Museum members, $35 for nonmembers.
