About This Performance

Note: This performance was originally scheduled for the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Tickets to the original venue will gain you entrance to this recital. 

We are delighted to welcome back to our series a pianist well known for his consummate musicianship and brilliant technique. Marcantonio Barone’s recital features the world premiere of George Crumb’s Metamorphoses (Book II), a work written specifically for him that offers a broad palette of coloristic effects along with Crumb’s unmistakable musical gestures, and an inherent sense of drama coupled with a magical, suspenseful atmosphere.

Bartók: Suite, Op. 14
Mozart: Sonata in D Major, K. 311
Crumb: Metamorphoses, Book II [World Premiere]
