SPCO: Kurtág Fragments with Patricia Kopatchinskaja

May 1 @ 7:30 pm

Artistic Partner Patricia Kopatchinskaja leads a program that explores the mystery behind various incomplete musical fragments. The last part of Bach’s magnum opus, his Art of Fugue, trails off mysteriously mid-sentence just as Bach embarks on a complex fugue that contains his musical signature.   Fragments of a German chorale (“Immortal Victims”) haunt Hartmann’s tragic Concerto funebre, and Kopatchinskaja intersperses selections from Kurtág between the movements of Mozart’s most dramatic symphony. To celebrate the SPCO’s recent Grammy® win for its Death and the Maiden recording with Kopatchinskaja, the second half of the concert will begin with the second movement of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden Quartet, in a full orchestra arrangement from the Grammy-winning album.
