DACAMERA presents Sarah Rothenberg: In Darkness and Light
In the spring of 2020, much of the world came to a standstill, and the following 12 months brought a dramatic mix of suspended time, social upheaval, loss and renewal. Pianist Sarah Rothenberg presents a fascinating program that encompasses extremes of emotion and the spiritual power of music across 200 years.
Beethoven’s transcendent last piano sonata of 1821-22, at the center of the program, is preceded by a new work by genre-defying, Grammy Award-winning composer Vijay Iyer, created for this concert. The recital closes with Morton Feldman’s timelessly contemplative final piano work.
