Eclectic Series: Yael Weiss / 32 Bright Clouds: Beethoven Conversations Around the World

October 7 at 7:00 pm

Eclectic Series

 

“32 Bright Clouds: Beethoven Conversations Around the World” is a global music-commissioning, performing and recording project curated by pianist Yael Weiss. The project commissions a diverse group of composers from countries of conflict and unrest around the world, with all new works unified by a single “Peace motif” from Beethoven, where he added the inscription “A Call for Inward and Outward Peace” above the notes. Each new composition is connected to one of Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas. “32 Bright Clouds” aims to harness music’s great power for unity and peace.
