Composite Identities: The Music of Schulhoff, Frank, and Bartok

This evening's program explores the idea of cultural identities in the music of Erwin Schulhoff, Gabriela Lena Frank, and Bela Bartok. Each of these composers are, to varying extents, musical anthropologists. Frank and Bartok’s music often incorporates folk and native music styles into a western classical structure, whereas Schulhoff integrates elements of modernism, neoclassicism, jazz, and dance from a number of sources and cultures.

Legion Listening Series

The Legion Listening Series presents chamber music in collaboration with Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.  By bringing together visual and performing arts in a public setting, these concerts stimulate the imagination and enhance the experience of visitors at the museum. Amaranth Quartet will be presenting a program inspired by artist Pierre Bonnard. Pierre Bonnard: Painting Arcadia is the first major international presentation of Pierre Bonnard’s work to be mounted on the West Coast in half a century. The exhibition celebrates Bonnard (French, 1867–1947) as one of the defining figures of modernism in the transitional period between Impressionism and abstraction.
