Decoda: Line and Expression

"A new collective of some of the brightest young classical musicians in the world . . . " —Time Out New York

There is a world of nuance in the use of lines—in etchings as well as in music. In this concert, Decoda (formerly known as The Declassified) presents a program that, like etchings, creates momentum and interplay through the use of musical lines, making evident the connection between the free and improvisational aesthetic of the etching process and music written using similar techniques. The program includes music by Rameau, Adès, Golijov, Muhly, Pärt, and Couperin.

This concert is made possible by the Xerox Foundation.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Artists and Amateurs: Etching in Eighteenth-Century France, on view from October 1, 2013, to January 5, 2014.

Recorded November 23, 2013
