Pop-Up Concerts

Takt Trio plays Ligeti

Monday, May 20, 2024, 6PM
Miller Theatre at Columbia University

Free admission • Doors open at 5:30PM, music at 6PM
Onstage seating is first-come, first-served.

György Ligeti wrote his Horn Trio in honor of the 150th birthday of Johannes Brahms, whose own horn trio is one of the quintessential works in chamber music. For this Pop-Up, the Takt Trio continues the tradition, performing Ligeti’s monumental work alongside two brand new horn trios by composers Marcos Balter and Hilda Paredes, commissioned for the occasion of Ligeti’s 100th birthday.

Sit onstage and enjoy a free drink during these hour-long weeknight Pop-Up Concerts, and mingle with the musicians and fellow concertgoers after the show.
