Shostakovich Four Waltzes, Op. 97c arr. Lev Atovmyan (fl/cl/pno)
Selections from 50 for the Future from Kronos Quartet
The General, Buster Keaton – improvised piano score
Matan Porat, piano
Settle in for an evening of movies and music, ChamberFest West style! Buster Keaton’s famous silent film inspires pianist/composer Matan Porat to “an astounding feat of creative musicianship” (The New Yorker): a completely original, improvised, live score which, like the film, is filled with drama, whimsy, and visionary imagination. Shostakovich’s waltzes—charming miniatures originally written for a film score—and selections from the Kronos Quartet’s globally-influenced “50 For the Future” project, set the scene.
ChamberFest West’s artistic, education, and community programs would not be possible without the generous support of hundreds of individuals and corporations.
