Foundation for Modern Music presents Music for Peace
A Foundation for Modern Music signature event, the 2018 Music for Peace concert joins the Arts of Tolerance this year and features two major works of import from the 20th century. Stravinsky's Mass is a famous modernist setting of the Roman Catholic liturgy by an Eastern Orthodox composer. George Crumb's Ancient Voices of Children, long regarded as a pivotal composition, is a song setting for nine performers of poems by Pablo Neruda and features unique elements such as toy piano, musical saw, and special inside-the-piano effects.
