TownMusic Season Finale: Pure Music for Muddled Times
To close the 2015-16 season of TownMusic, the Town Hall Seattle new-music chamber music series that Joshua Roman leads as Artistic Director, he welcomes an ensemble of chamber musicians — violinists Arnaud Sussman and Johnny Gandelsman, violist Kyle Armbrust, and pianist Andrius Žlabys — to perform works written by clear-eyed composers in the midst of troubled times. The Tuesday, May 24 program includes Britten’s String Quartet No. 2, Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet, and the world premiere of a Town Hall commission by Andrius Žlabys honoring the victims of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, near his own birthplace in Lithuania. A live video stream will be available to watch on secondinversion.org beginning at 7:30pm Pacific/10:30pm Eastern. Find tickets and more information here.
