“Clavier à Couleurs”

Musicians Gregory Millar and Lisa Raposa (Millar Piano Duo) and Vermont-based artist Antonietta Kies come together in an original show of music and images.

Inspired by Scriabin’s late-Romantic oeuvre (op. 11) and a familial sense of connection to music for the piano, Kies exhibits twenty-four brand-new painted “poetics”. On-screen projections of this evocative collection of landscapes and symbols are played along with the music, rendered live by Raposa. The event comes full-circle with Millar in a performance of the Twenty-four Preludes, op. 28 by Chopin. Part art opening, part concert: allow yourself to partake in this synesthetic experience of sound transformed by light.
