Da Camera presents Picasso and Music
On the occasion of the Menil Collection’s drawing exhibition, Picasso: The Line, pianist and Da Camera artistic director Sarah Rothenberg presents a program inspired by the work of Pablo Picasso.
Picasso’s genius is notable for its virtuosic diversity of styles and his work in multiple artistic media. His creativity extended also to theater and dance in collaborations with such composers as Igor Stravinsky, Manuel De Falla and Erik Satie. These landmark ballets produced by Diaghilev’s legendary Ballet russes, with sets and costumes by Picasso, become the springboard for Sarah Rothenberg’s exploration of parallel paths in music and art at the beginning of the 20th century.
