This is a Groupmuse Night Out

Explore the wider world of music outside Groupmuse with exclusive discounts to local concerts.

Host

CAE welcomes our Groupmuse community back for yet another fabulous evening of programming, at discounted rates through the Nights Out program.

The program examines the intersection of past and present as shadows of history gives way to the future. It includes Rebecca Clarke’s Midsummer Moon for violin and piano; Serge Arcuri’s Les Furieuses enluminures for flute, clarinet, piano and string quartet; Beethoven’s Quintet in E-flat Major for piano and winds, Op. 16; Thomas Adès kaleidoscopic reimagining of Couperin’s Les baricades mistérieuses for clarinet, bass clarinet, viola, cello and double bass; and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet in g minor, Op. 57.

Beethoven breaks free from his Classical roots, while Arcuri animates fantastical scenes from Medieval manuscripts. Clarke plays hide and seek with quixotic clouds, and Adès unveils Couperin’s enigma for the 21 st century with a shimmering, kaleidoscopic trompe l’oeil. Shostakovich, too, looks to the past, bringing Baroque grandeur to his electrifying brand of modernism, as shadows of history give way to the future.

Ticket buyers are instructed to pick up their tickets at Will Call in the 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance. Seating is GA, first come first served within the designated section.
