CSO Chamber Music Series: Challenging Conventions

September 30, 2018
Fullerton Hall
$33 per person; call (312) 294-3000 for tickets

Innovation meets the unexpected in an afternoon featuring dazzling music and art. Works by Dvořák and Bottesini highlight fresh and unusual instrumentations, while Seed’s Tangoesque journeys through playful genre combinations. Schnittke’s vulnerable and haunting Piano Quintet is a deeply personal emblem of the composer’s life experiences. After the concert, a gallery tour explores the Hairy Who, a self-named group of six artists whose late 1960s art uses personal symbolism and popular culture to comment on society’s notions of identity, social mores and more.
