About This Performance

Steven Mackey’s violin concerto Beautiful Passing had its very successful premiere here in May 2011. Stumble to Grace, Mackey’s first concerted work featuring the piano, suggests a pianist’s journey from stumbling beginnings to graceful virtuosity, as well as “various stages of progress and regress in the physical and spiritual evolution of the piano.”

Come for:

The husband-and-wife team of Robertson and Shaham in a powerful new piano concerto.

And more:

The concerts culminate in Mussorgsky’s fanciful, powerful musical paintings.

Free MOCA Admission:

Free admission to the Museum of Contemporary Art (Grand Ave. location) by showing your Pictures ticket. April 5-7 only.
