Bruce Adolphe, for example, worked with Schubert’s Quartettsatz in C minor and Andante (unfinished); building on those musical themes, Adolphe wrote Fra(nz)gmentate. In a video about the composition posted online, Adolphe says he’s unsurprised that Schubert would leave pieces that seemed viable incomplete. “To write a nice melody for Schubert was so easy,” says Adolphe, “that the fact that he would abandon a melody is trivial. It’s like not finishing your breakfast. Why didn’t you finish your sausages?…I guess he was full.” 7:30 p.m. 1515 Sul Ross. For information, call 713-524-5050 or visit www.dacamera.org. $35.
