The White Album


Jan 7, 2017
Musiqa / Zilkha Hall

The much-anticipated world premiere of Mark Kilstofte's The White Album is featured on Musiqa's first concert of 2017. Commissioned by the Fromm Foundation, the work references The Beatles' iconic album, and features soprano Karol Bennett and poet Erica Funkhouser. Musiqa composer Pierre Jalbert's Piano Trio No. 2  juxtaposes a desolate, nocturnal landscape with the relentless whirl of driving on Houston's highways. Also featured on the program are David Rakowski's jazzy Natura Morta and Laura Schwendinger's expressive Wet Ink.
