About This Performance

Lutoslawsky Centenary
See all Lutosławski Centenary concerts

We celebrate Lutosławski with his Partita and his magical song-cycle Chantefleurs et Chantefables on Robert Desnos’ enchanting poems for children. Lutosławski liked French Surrealist poetry and had previously set poems by Desnos, who died in the Terezin concentration camp.

Come for:

The astonishing “sung flowers and fables,” an affecting, direct soprano line floating over perfectly calibrated scoring.

And more:

Matched with Lutosławski are works by two of his most ardent champions, Esa-Pekka Salonen’s fantastical string quartet and Steven Stucky’s sextet inspired by a Paul Klee painting.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
