I believe that Picasso can help us understand Stravinsky and vice versa...the musician and painter, while attracting us, shock us, and for reasons that seem to be identical...

Over one hundred years ago, two artistic giants ignited a modernist revolution. The art of Pablo Picasso and the music of Igor Stravinsky turned the cultural world on its head, and we are still challenged and intrigued by the audacity of these works. Independently, the two men discovered new modes of expression, but their stylistic paths show a remarkable correspondence. Join me in an exploration of seven compositions of Stravinsky paired with seven Picasso artworks, to delve into the modernist breakthroughs that left their mark on the 20th century.

This concert is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Boulder Piano Gallery.
