Gustavo Romero: Two Pianos & Percussion
Join us for a special concert of music from the 20th century performed by Gustavo Romero and Massimo Somenzi on piano, and Gregory Cohen and Andrew Watkins on percussion. When Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring was first premiered in Paris in 1913, there were riots in protest. Over a hundred years later, the work continues to be provocative. On March 23, you can hear it played in Stravinsky’s arrangement for two pianos using the original percussion parts, along with one of Béla Bartók’s most expressive works, Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. These two masterpieces of the 20th century will be performed for the first time at the Athenaeum by two virtuoso pianists and two superb percussionists.
- When: Saturday, March 23, 2019, 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
