Concerts from the Library of Congress, 2014-2015: Beyond Labels

APRIL 24 at 8 PM

Katherine Chi, Aleksandar Madzar, Yura Lee

Coolidge Auditorium

Join pianists Katherine Chi and Aleksandar Madžar as they perform one of the masterworks of the 20th century: Karlheinz Stockhausen’s 1970 Mantra for two pianos, percussion and electronics. This enthralling piece marked Stockhausen’s return to determinacy in his compositions, and his mastery of the medium is revelatory. Prefacing Mantra will be Elliott Carter’s riveting Duo for violin and piano, commissioned by the McKim Fund in the Library of Congress. Violinist Yura Lee partners with Katherine Chi for this special performance.
