Danse Macabre

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

An evening of haunting melodies and mystical dance unfolds, from Ysaÿe’s and Ravel’s intense narratives to the whimsical charm of Butler’s Roald Dahl-inspired “Dirty Beasts” and Adès’ spirited “Catch.” The program culminates with Schubert’s profound “Death and the Maiden,” weaving together an unforgettable tapestry of music that oscillates between the ethereal, the playful, and the deeply moving.
