Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor Street, Hartford
Barber Adagio for Strings
Diehl Improvisation, pas de deux- the Music Lesson
Higdon Dance Card
Ligeti Six Bagatelles
Nielsen Wind Quintet, Op. 43
In an exciting collaboration with Real Art Ways, current gallery exhibits were used as inspiration for several of the music selections for the evening. The playful yet poignant nature of Niki Kriese’s solo exhibition Chewing the Scenery inspired the inclusion of Ligeti’s Six Bagatelles, which mirrors the artwork’s complexities. The calming ebbs-and-flows in Nielsen’s Wind Quintet, Op. 43 pair perfectly with Barbara Hocker’s sculptural paper works, Downstream, which take inspiration from the sea and sky.
As part of the evening, artist Barbara Hocker will give an introduction about the exhibition “Downstream” and her practice of Tai Chi & Qigong, including a brief audience participation warm up of Flying Dragon Qigong.
