Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.
Harawi, a 12-part song cycle, is the first part of Olivier Messiaen’s “Tristan Trilogy,” a series in which he explores the themes of love and death, particularly in relation to the myth of Tristan and Isolde. The French composer is revered as one of the pioneers of modern music and serialism, and was a longtime professor at the Paris Conservatoire, where his pupils included Boulez and Stockhausen. Following the release of their 2013 recording of Hawari that has been heralded as “one of the best new interpretations of Messiaen in years” (WQXR), the acclaimed duo of Tony Arnold and Jacob Greenberg take to the stage to present their take on this notoriously complex modernist masterpiece.
Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
