Groupmuse
97th-time host

Dmitri Shostakovich was writing music for a world coming apart a the seams. He lived in perpetual fear that a sharp knock at the door would be the State coming to take his life away. The power of that fear and his resolve to endure imbue his music with a two-sidedness - of terror and of beauty - that have ensured it a place in the halls of history, to be forever celebrated as a peak expression of human genius.

Nowhere is this genius expressed more succinctly and completely than in his 8th String Quartet. And so we Massivemuse. While most of us don’t fear the knock on our own door, so many of the forces that made Shosti’s world a living nightmare seem to be stirring in our own - so it seems an important moment to remember where we’ve been to steel our resolve as we move forward into our unknown age.

In collaboration with Quattro Battute Productions, we’ve put together an ensemble of some of the greatest talent this city has to offer to collectively meditate on Shotakovich’s 8th String Quartet. And we’ll start the evening with a performance of Bach’s Chaconne in D Minor -- a piece often regarded as the greatest ever written and legendary for its clarity, its depth, and its purity -- to pry us open and beckon our arrival into a space of honest listening.

It’ll be a somber and shatteringly powerful evening of music but it is Groupmuse after all, so we’ll be following the performance with Bacchic decompression and revelry — The Bogart House, which is hosting us in its glorious penthouse space for the night, has an absolutely world class sound system and the Brothers Speltz will be DJing the after-muse Dance Party until the wee hours.

We hope you’ll join us.

Is the Grand St. subway stop the nearest to Bogart St., and, if so, how far is it from that stop? If not, what is the nearest subway stop?
