Obsession

Friday, February 6, 2015, 7:00 p.m.

The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium Show location on map

Drawing inspiration from an exhibition that examines Paul Cézanne’s lifelong, intimate—some would say obsessive—artistic dialogue with his wife, muse, and model, Hortense Fiquet, Attacca mines a similar relationship: that of Czech composer Leoš Janáček and the married woman thirty-seven years his junior, Kamila Stösslová, with whom he exchanged more than seven hundred letters, and who inspired his quartets.

Leoš Janáček: Quartet No. 1, “Kreutzer Sonata” and Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters”

This program is in conjunction with the exhibition Madame Cézanne, on view November 19, 2014—March 15, 2015.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
