BUY TICKETS – This is a hybrid concert (in-person or online) – Old First seating is limited to 100 tickets.

The festival concludes Season 4.5 through the lens of an historical epoch that is both precedent and premonition: the 1918 Spanish Flu, the armistice of 1918, and the advent of the roaring twenties. The Piano Festival takes its inspiration from this moment and follows the thread of innocence lost and reclaimed, tragedy mourned, joy in rebirth, and the dizzying juxtaposition of folly and destruction.

Highlights include performances of Couperin, Bach, and Poulenc with Jory Vinikour and Philippe LeRoy, Gwendolyn Mok, and Jesse Barrett performing Saint-Saens’ Sonata for Oboe and Piano, works by Nadia Boulanger and Germaine Tailleferre, and the vertiginous La Valse by Ravel reimagined through multimedia.
