Aspect is back with another Night Out offering for our Groupmuse community members!

Aspect events always include a delightful combination of musical performance, an illustrated lecture that provides additional depth to the program, and a post concert reception with complimentary wine. Featuring some of the highest caliber musicians and musicologists New York has to offer, it's no wonder that these events sell out like hot cakes ever time, so get yours 50%+ off ticket while you still can.

The thematic program this time, which Aspect has dubbed 'Alla Zingarese', centers around how composers Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms were influenced by Hungarian folk music. Here's what Aspect has to say about it:

As a little boy growing up in the Hungarian countryside, Franz Lizst often wandered through the nearby Roma camps, fascinated by the music of the proud Romani people. He was more influenced by their art than was any other composer, except perhaps Johannes Brahms. The style hongrois is present in the music of both these composers, not only in obvious cases such as their Hungarian rhapsodies and dances, but also in their ‘serious’ music. When the young, relatively unknown Brahms visited Liszt in Weimar in 1853, the meeting ended with the latter performing his Sonata in B minor. The finale of Brahms’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Rondo alla Zingarese, is one of the supreme examples of a classical work that employs the feverish frenzy and rhythmic energy as well as heartache and sadness of Roma music.

The illustrated talk will be given by pianist, Per Tengstrand.
