Rothko Chapel Concert: "Mark Rothko: A Musical Response"


Mark Rothko's work, including the Rothko Chapel, has inspired numerous responses in prose, poetry, movement and music. Noted pianist Haskell Small performs his piece The Rothko Room: Journeys in Silence, which was inspired by the Rothko Room in the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. Additionally, the concert includes pieces inspired by the spiritual power of mountains by Alan Hovhaness. 

Small is an accomplished composer and pianist who has performed with great success in Europe, South America, Japan and China, and has been enthusiastically received by American audiences in such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Spoleto Festival USA. The top semifinalist in the Johann Sebastian Bach International Piano Competition, Small has received numerous awards and has been featured in the nationally broadcast PBS special A Celebration of the Piano.

A reception on the plaza follows the program.
