The Toledo-based Sono Novo Chamber Orchestra returns to TMA with a concert inspired by TMA’s permanent collection.  Just as the realism of romantic art gave way to the fixation of capturing color and atmosphere, so Gabriel Faure's two piano quartets that Sono Novo will perform demonstrate the evolution from functional form and harmony to a pre-occupation with sonic color, energy, and aural mood, hallmarks which would dominate the musical landscape of the Belle Epoque. Great Performances is supported in part by the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Fund and Kingston Healthcare.
