Spectral Impressions: Music of Tristan Murail

22 Jul 2012
17:30:00 - 20:00:00
Rodin Museum Garden

The newly re-opened and renovated Rodin Museum premieres a new concert series and an extraordinary work by Tristan Murail.

Murail is a pioneer of computer music and the world's authority on French Spectralism—a form of composition that relies on an analysis of the fundamental properties of sound and the acoustical properties of musical instruments. The result is the exquisite tones of Murail’s provocative music. This concert offers a unique opportunity to hear a selection of Murail’s very best work, and be the first to hear his new composition. Murail attended Columbia University from 1997 to 2011 and during that time, he worked closely with the Argento Chamber Ensemble on concert performances and an award-winning recording of his chamber music. This program, including commissioning and presentation, has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Music Project. Concert will be held outside, rain or shine. Paid parking is available at Eakins Oval or street parking where available.
