Classical Concert: Konstantin Soukhovetski, piano

Back Event Sep 13, 2015 @ 3 pm

The Crocker is proud to present this performance by Julliard-graduate and multi-award-winning pianist Konstantin Soukhovetski that explores themes of Classicism in the David Ligare exhibition. 

Soukhovetski offers his own transcriptions of such classics as Verdi’s “La Traviata” and Puccini’s “La Bohème” to examine questions of love, both romantic and platonic. Included in the program will be the pianist’s own version of Richard Strauss’s opera “Capriccio,” which examines the Classical artistic debate: “Which is the greater art—poetry, or music?” Expand the debate for yourself as Soukhovetski takes on Classical ideas that David Ligare poses in his paintings and drawings.

This concert is part of the Crocker’s monthly Classical Concert series with Prelude Tours preceding the concert at 1 & 2 p.m.

$6 Museum members, $10 students/youth & Capital Public Radio members, $12 nonmembers.
