Marly Music: Yael Weiss – 32 Bright Clouds

June 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$15 – $25

As part of the Marly Music concert series at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, acclaimed Israeli-American pianist Yael Weiss will perform selections from “32 Bright Clouds: Beethoven Conversations Around the World.” The project, curated by Weiss, commissions a diverse group composers from 32 countries of conflict and unrest around the world, with all new works unified by a single peace motif from Beethoven’s 32 Piano Sonatas, where he added the inscription “A Call for Inward and Outward Peace” above the notes. “32 Bright Clouds” aims to harness music’s great power for unity and peace. The program will include “Hope For the Shackled” by George Mensah Essilfie of Ghana; Unheard Voices, by Filipino composer Sidney Marquez Boquiren, with additional 32 Clouds works from Indonesia, Iran and Venezuela. Weiss’ New York recital debut, presented by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was lauded by the New York Times as, “remarkably powerful and intense . . . fine technique and musicianship in the service of an arresting array of music.”
