In The Fertile Winter Shadows Of The John F. Kennedy Center For the Performing Arts

Thanks to a special Estonian Independence Day celebration grant from the Embassy of Estonia, tomorrow (Thursday) evening’s 6 PM Erkki-Sven Tüür portrait chamber concert, with the New Tallinn Trio and the composer, at the Phillips Collection is free of charge (with reservation). Remaining seats are limited. (If doable, the museum requests a $20 contribution to help it further its contemporary classical music programming and commissioning projects.)

On March 3 at 6:30 and 7:30 PM, the Phillips Collection hosts Roger Reynolds for two evening sets of music in the large upstairs special exhibition gallery featuring two solo guitar pieces "imAge/guitar" and "imagE/guitar" and an extended "transformation" of them in a work called "Dream Mirror" as performed by guitarist Pablo Gomez and computer musician Jaime Oliver.

And on March 10 at 6 PM, the Museum hosts a special concert focusing on the relationship between painter Philip Guston and Morton Feldman. The Red Light Ensemble performs Feldman’s ‘The King of Denmark’, ‘Palais di Mari’ for solo piano, and ‘Why Patterns?’ There is also a conversation between Philip Guston curator Susan Behrends Frank and Feldman protégé Dr. Nils Vigeland.

The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.


Next up: The National Gallery of Art, the Embassy of Indonesia to the United States, and the Post-Classical Ensemble, Washington, D.C. celebrate Lou Harrison.
