2-for-1 Tickets to Pianist-Chanter Paul Barnes
Pianist and chanter Paul Barnes brings “Love, Death, and Resurrection in the Musical Vision of Philip Glass, Franz Liszt, and Ancient Chant,” along with a premiere commission by Victoria Bond, to Nichols Concert Hall March 10. During the summer of 2017, Barnes lost many close friends to cancer. One of the ways he processed his grief was developing this powerful musical meditation exploring love and death. Beginning with the story of Orpheus, the program connects the music of Glass, Liszt, Bond, and byzantine chant. Glass and Bond have written multiple pieces for him in the past, many based on byzantine chant. He has also specialized in Liszt, particularly in terms of religious symbolism in his piano music.
Paul Barnes in “Love, Death, and Resurrection in the Musical Vision of Philip Glass, Franz Liszt, and Ancient Chant” takes place on Sunday, March 10 at 3:00 pm at Nichols Concert Hall, 1490 Chicago Avenue in Evanston. WTTW members may purchase two full-price tickets for the price of one, subject to availability.
