The Cascadia Art Museum resumes its beloved classical chamber music concert series, Music in the Museum, on Saturday, July 17 at 5 p.m. and resumes at 7:30 p.m. The program includes the passionate sonata for two violins by Prokofiev and pieces by Milhaud, Moszkowski and Brahms, and features virtuoso violinist Pamela Liu (concertmaster of the Cascade Symphony Orchestra), with violinist Amy Crow and a of the Northwest’s foremost pianists, Harumi Makiyama. Pamela and Harumi Featured In Video Now on the site of the Cascadia Art Museum.
“For me, Prokofiev’s Sonata for Two Violins is one of his most moving and poetic works, and full of the beautiful abstract melodies so characteristic of Prokofiev,” said Cal Lewin, a museum volunteer. “Moszkowski was world famous in the 19th century and his Romantic Suite is a charming example of his genius. And Milhaud’s soaring impressionist sonata is richly melodic. It should be very exciting to hear performances up close by such accomplished musicians in this intimate setting. “
Your ticket includes entry to the museum, so you can come visit the galleries and enjoy an hour of great music surrounded by art. The three current exhibitions include Origins: Abstract art from the Northwest 1920-1960; Painted with light: Pictorialist photograph of the northwest 1910-1930; and Donations and pledges to the Museum’s permanent collection.
