Vista offers a “fresh look at chamber music” Dec. 3

Morse-stage-spragueThe Yale School of Music presents Vista: A Fresh Look at Chamber Music on Tuesday, December 3 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall. The Vista series features student performances enhanced by commentary on the music.

This semester’s Vista concert features pieces by DebussyBlissHornoff, and Mozart for a variety of instrumentation, from strings to brass and mixed ensembles.

The performance will begin with Debussy’s String Quartet, performed by Avi Nagin, violin; Yena Lee, violin; Yuan Qi, viola; and Allan Hon, cello. The piece melds influences from the composer César Franck as well as from Javanese gamelan music. Pierre Boulez said that Debussy freed chamber music from its “rigid structure, frozen rhetoric, and rigid aesthetics.”
