Labyrinths can be places for getting lost, for spiritual wanderings, or paths towards finding ourselves. This concert of musical labyrinths invites you to lose yourself in the musical riddles of J.S. Bach, the libraries of Jorge Luis Borges, and the seductive steps of Astor Piazzolla’s tangos and songs. Who knows what you might find… Bring your dance shoes and stay for a Milonga tango party after the concert! The concert starts at 8 PM, and the Milonga starts at 9:30 PM. Tickets for the concert are $20 for adults, or $15 students with I.D.; $30 for the concert and the dance; or $15 for just the dance.

Ma Mère L’Oye (Mother Goose Suite) Concert

Sponsor: Birdfoot Festival
Auditorium: Contemporary Arts Center, Warehouse District

e-mail: info@birdfootfestival.org
Web: http://birdfootfestival.org/ma-mere-loye/

Follow the trail of breadcrumbs into a musical world of myths and fairytales. Ravel’s beloved Mother Goose Suite colorfully paints a Pavane for Sleeping Beauty, the dance of Beauty and the Beast, and other stories, while Anton Webern’s miniature Bagatelles evaporate more quickly than Tom Thumb’s bread crumbs. The Goose Daughter is the world premiere performance of pianist and composer Prach Boondiskulchok’s new chamber song-cycle, inspired by the poems of Sarah Howe (winner of the 2016 TS Eliot prize). Dvorak’s adventurous String Quintet rounds out a not-to-miss concert. The concert starts at 8 PM, preceded by a concert featuring young artists from the festival's Young Artist Program at 7 PM. Tickets are $25 for general admission, or $15 for students with I.D.

Final Gala Concert (Lost to the World)

Waltz into the arms of turn-of-the-century Vienna — this musical journey begins with Mozart’s “Dissonance” String quartet which stretched the musical rules of its time. It then time-warps into the ecstatic mania of Europe’s gilded age. Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder, one of the composer’s most intimate song-cycles, may leave you “lost to the world,” but Schoenberg’s shimmering Transfigured Night will redeem. The concert starts at 8 PM, preceded by a concert featuring young artists from the festival's Young Artist Program at 7 PM. Tickets are $25 for general admission, or $15 for students with I.D.
