Following a sold-out appearance in 2022, audience favorite The Takács Quartet returns to BroadStage on Friday, November 17, 2023 with an exquisite program of Haydn, Beethoven, and a newly commissioned work from LA native and accomplished violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama as part of The California Festival. Ngwenyama’s “flow,” composed for Takács Quartet, is a meditation on the theme of climate change.
Of the inspiration for the piece, Ngwenyama wrote: “We, as biological creatures, flow through life. Conversely, the flow of existence is temporarily housed in all living creatures each generation. Everything in nature flows and develops through time. Individual consciousness is a small part of all collectively lived experience.” We are eager to share this collective experience with you at the theater!
Then, described by The New Yorker as “adventurous and passionate,” Ukrainian-American pianist Inna Faliks makes her BroadStage solo debut on Sunday, May 19, 2024 with an eclectic program of works from Beethoven, Billy Childs, Ravel, Clara Schuman, and more. Faliks will also premiere two new contemporary works.
