Next Atlantis | Civilizations Between Heaven and Earth

  • Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò at NYU 24 W 12th Street New York, NY United States (map)

This evening’s concert features works that explore structural and architectural variations, from music to buildings and eventually civilizations, meeting their ultimate purpose. The great Italian composer Corelli is one of hundreds of composers over the centuries to explore the construct of the famous 16 measures of La Folia. In an arrangement by legendary violinist Fritz Kreisler, Austrian rising star Filip Pogády will open this evening’s program. Sebastian Currier’s Next Atlantis mixes recorded sounds of water with sound waves of a string quartet in tandem with visually striking videography by collaborative artist Pawel Wojtasik. The evening concludes with one of Olivier Messiaen’s defining compositions based on the Book of Revelation entitled “Quatuor pour la fin du temps” or Quartet for the End of Time.
