Live! At the Norton / Pop Influences: Music in the 60s

Feb. 16, 2014 3 PM

Piano Duo Gastesi-Bezerra returns to the Norton Museum for a concert that will feature music from John Cage to Philip Glass, among other composers who were touched by the Pop aesthetic of the 1960s. 

The husband-wife duo will feature Cage’s iconic 4’33” as well as other, more conventional masterworks.  Billed by the American Record Guide, as “a strong combination, playing very well together — often indistinguishable,” pianists Estibaliz Gastesi and Márcio Bezerra are staunch supporters of new music. They have commissioned and premiered more than 20 works by renowned and upcoming composers.

Reflecting the duo’s commitment to perform new music “beyond the world premiere,” new works have been subsequently performed in different countries of the Americas and Europe for a wide array of audiences. In recognition of this mission, the duo has been awarded the Encore Grant by the American Composers Forum and the Gene Gutchë PerformanceIncentive Fund by the Schubert Club.

Tickets will be available at Visitor Services on the day of the concert: $3/members, $5/non-members.

Theater doors open at 2 p.m. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Live! At the Norton is made possible in part through the generosity of the Gayle and Paul Gross Education Endowment Fund.
