Masters of the Small Form - This program explores the similarities between two eras of tremendous creative output. Just as Dutch and Flemish painters found expression in diminutive works, many American jazz artists were masters of short and inventive themes. Quartet leader Gelb compares the paintings of 17th-century artists Vermeer and Rubens with the 20th-century compositions of John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, and Sonny Rollins.
Docent-led tours will be available at 1:45 pm before each concert in the series. The tours, tailored to music lovers, link art in the Museum’s collection to that day's chamber music performance. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance by contacting Christine Molesky, (919) 664-6785. Tours are free; paid admission to ticketed exhibitions is required.
