Chameleon Arts Ensemble performs Milhaud’s Creation of the World Suite
October 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on October 13, 2019 at 4:00 pm
The critically-acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble begins its 2019-2020 chamber music season “at the beginning,” with Darius Milhaud’s jazz-age ballet score, La Création Du Monde in his arrangement for piano quintet, Op. 81b. The work is a vivid portrait of the creation of the world based on African folk mythology that blurs the line between Parisian fashion and pagan ritual. Also on the concert are Mahler’s first – and only – chamber work, the Piano Quartet in a minor; Leoš Janáček’s Mladi (Youth) suite for wind sextet; Beethoven’s “Spring” Sonata No. 5 in F Major, Op. 24; and the premiere of Jeremy Gill’s …and everywhere the sea for clarinet and piano.
Tickets are $49, $38 or $27 with $5 off for students and seniors. Performances take place on Saturday, October 12 at 8 PM and Sunday, October 13 at 4 PM at First Church in Boston. For more information or to order tickets, please call 617-427-8200 or visit http://www.chameleonarts.org.
