Lou Harrison Centennial

When: Fri., Oct. 20 2017

Tonight at 7:30, the Cleveland Museum of Art pays tribute to composer Lou Harrison with Lou Harrison Centennial!, a program that includes Harrison's Concerto for Piano and Javanese Gamelan, featuring pianist Sarah Cahill. The program also includes a performance by Gamelan Galak Tika under the direction of Evan Ziporyn. Harrison integrated non-Western traditions of Asia and Southeast Asia into what we think of as classical music and did it in a sophisticated way. A contemporary of John Cage and Henry Cowell, he was among the first wave of truly American composers who shined a light on traditions beyond the European classical tradition. Tickets are $33 to $45, $30 to $40 for CMA members. (Niesel)
