Liquid Music Series: Patricia Kopatchinskaja

  • Minneapolis, MN Walker Art Center, 725 Vineland Pl Minneapolis, MN 55403 (map)

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series presents Patricia Kopatchinskaja, “one of classical music’s great risk takers” (Bachtrack), brings the music of 20th century composer, Marxist and staunch anti-fascist Luigi Nono to life in the Walker Art Center galleries. The fiery Moldovan violinist performs Nono’s La Lontananza Nostalgica Utopica Futura, a late work for violin and electronics inspired by an inscription found on a monastery in Toledo, Spain: “Caminante, no hay caminos hay que caminar” (“Wanderer, there is no way, there is only walking”). Known for “alarmingly innovative” (LA Times) musical interpretation that “excites and puzzles” (New York Times), Kopatchinskaja brings contemporary perspective to Nono’s mid-century cry for meaningful political change.
