Description

Wine and cheese reception at 7:00, Concert at 8:00PM
*PLEASE NOTE THE CRYPT IS NOT WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE*


The Long Version

Matan Porat is a sonic storyteller - weaving disparate threads into a musical tapestry that takes listeners through time and space, journeying toward something greater. Amidst the flickering candles of the Crypt, Porat will present his light-inspired program Lux, where twelve pieces, composed across twelve centuries, trace the course of a day from dawn to dusk. Each piece possesses its own unique luminescence - beginning with a Gregorian chant for the break of day, ending with Beethoven’s immortal “Moonlight” sonata, and interspersing works that range from contemporary composers Thomas Adès and Matthias Pintscher to Bartók, Debussy, Schumann and more.


The Short Version

Come hear one of today’s brightest pianistic talents light a candle in the crypt, and shine a path through the darkness for us to follow.
