Messiaen Centennial Concert: Visions de lAmen
If youre into the dueling piano thing and cant wait for the next Billy Joel/Elton John show, join lady ivory pounders Marilyn Nonken and Sarah Rothenberg for Da Cameras Messiaen Centennial Concert: Visions de lAmen. This work by composer Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) didnt exactly top the French hit parade back in 1943, but its impressive. He first performed the great religious piano cycle in a semisecret gallery concert in Nazi-occupied Paris alongside Yvonne Loriod, a student who would later become his wife. The concerts theme partly reflects his hardcore Roman Catholicism, which sustained him while he served time as a prisoner of war. 7:30 p.m. Rothko Chapel, 1409 Sul Ross. For information, call 713-524-5050 or visit www.dacamera.com. $30.
Tue., Dec. 9, 7:30 p.m., 2008
