UPCOMING CONCERT: Lisa Goethe performing Salvatore Sciarrino’s flute opera on Sunday, November 10, 2pm in Bond Chapel
Sciarrino’s flute opera is a program of solo works for the instrument written throughout his career. Sciarrino’s works are expressive of inner states (emotional, psychological, physiological). The music never loses its roots in utterance. For this reason breath, and by extension the flute, occupies a central place in his thinking.
FREE and open to the public.
