Da Camera Honors the Rothko Chapel with “Music for Rothko”
Presented in Collaboration with Houston Chamber Choir
Da Camera offers a powerful program of avant-garde music that resonates with the deep spirituality of this unique space. Intimate piano works of Erik Satie, unknown choral compositions of John Cage, and Morton Feldman’s “beloved Schubert” create the musical setting for a performance of Feldman’s masterpiece, Rothko Chapel, inspired by his visit to the chapel in 1971. Performers are the Houston Chamber Choir conducted by Robert Simpson, Sarah Rothenberg, piano and celesta, Brian Del Signore, percussion, and Kim Kashkashian, making her first Houston appearance in over 20 years.
