Poetry Through Music

  • Settlement Music School - Presser Hall 416 Queen Street Philadelphia, PA, 19147 United States (map)

Friedrich Hölderlin’s novel Hyperion is at the core of this program, serving as inspiration for both Georg Friedrich Haas’ exquisite chamber work ...aus freier Lust… verbunden… and a new poem composed for Network by MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning poet Susan Stewart. Six new chamber works – by Gerald Levinson, Andrew Rudin, Eliza Brown, Benjamin Krause, Robert Capanna and Ke-Chia Chen are composed in response to Stewart’s new poetry. Post-concert discussion will be held with composers and poet.

Program Change: Georg Friedrich Haas' ...aus freier Lust... verbunden... will not be performed on this program due to an unfortunate playing injury suffered by a Network Ensemble Musician.

Advance ticket sales: $20 Regular/15 senior/10 student (at the door; $25/20/10)
