Pictures at the Micro-Exhibition, 2018
Sunday, October 14, 3 pm 

World premiere of work by Summer 2018 Harn Composer-in-Residence Navid Bargrizan
Inspired by an album on view in the Show Me the Mini exhibition by Japanese artist Watanabe Shötei (1851–1918), Pictures at the Micro-Exhibition translates the visual elements in the paintings (line, form, color, impressions from nature) to musical elements (rhythm, meter, pitch, scale, melody). Composed for alto saxophone, the piece builds on natural harmonics and Japanese, microtonal pentatonic scales, as well as Mussorgsky’s canonic work Pictures at an Exhibition (1874). The composition will be performed by Laurent Estoppey.

This program is supported by UF College of the Arts and UF School of Music and co-sponsored by UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere (Rothman Endowment).
