MUSIC: Piano Masters— Gilbert Kalish
Gilbert Kalish leads a musical life of unusual variety and breadth. His profound influence on the musical community as educator—and as pianist in myriad performances and over 100 recordings—has established him as a major figure in American music-making. Honored by Chamber Music America for his lifetime contributions to that genre, he is famous for solo repertoire including Ives and Haydn sonatas, contemporary composers Carter, Shapey, and Crumb, and vocal collaborations with Jan DeGaetani and Dawn Upshaw. His program includes new works on the theme of Bach's Goldberg Variations by composers including Bolcom, C.Curtis-Smith, Fred Lerdahl, Stanley Walden, Fred Hersh, Derek Bermel and Michael Zupko.
Seully Hall, FREE

FEB 3–5 Thursday–Saturday 8 p.m.
OPERA: Akhnaten
Philip Glass explores the relationships between Akhnaten (King Amenhotep IV) and his family and subjects in ancient Egypt. Akhnaten abolishes Egyptian tradition by turning to monotheistic religion and refuses to practice polygamy in order to remain true to his wife, Nefertiti. The embittered priests incite the people to overthrow Akhnaten, leaving the royal family to wander the temple built in honor of their god. In typical Philip Glass style, there is nothing “traditional” about Akhnaten.
