GALLERY CONCERT: Time Canvas
Thursday, May 5 at 7:00 p.m.
The Cleveland-based chamber music ensemble Time Canvas will present their third and final program of the 2015-16 concert season on Thursday, May 5 in our beautiful gallery space. The program showcases 20th century chamber music with strings, featuring the Leo Brouwer Quintet for Guitar and String Quartet (1958). Other works on the program include the Sonata for Two Violins op. 56 by Sergei Prokofiev (1932), and Allen Krantz’ Trio Op. 27 for violin, cello, and guitar (2003). The ensemble will be joined by special guests Aniela Eddy (violin) and Sarah Poe (viola).
Time Canvas rediscovers classical chamber music by exploring three often forgotten genres: early music, new music, and improvisation. The trio’s instrumentation of violin, cello, and guitar lends itself to intimate concerts recalling a time when chamber music was performed predominantly in the living room for friends and family. At the heart of the ensemble is a common desire to create beautiful music and deliver it in a manner in which the audience may engage both the music and their own selves with a fresh, reflective perspective. In contrast to an age filled with busyness and distraction, Time Canvas hopes to encourage the audience to rediscover the value of engaging art in a purposeful manner.
Time Canvas’ musical curiosity has culminated in performances throughout Northeast Ohio, where they reside, in addition to performance spaces across the east coast of the United States and in Bangkok, Thailand.
