Daydreams In Music: Einstein & His Violin
Wednesday, June 15, 2016
7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Leo Baeck Institute, 15 West 16th Street
“Life without playing music is inconceivable…I get most joy in life out of music.” Albert Einstein
As part of its exploration of Gravity 350, the Chelsea Music Festival presents a program at the Leo Baeck Institute celebrating Albert Einstein’s contributions to science as well as his lifelong love for the violin and chamber music. Einstein is known to have said that “life without playing music is inconceivable…I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music…I get most joy in life out of music.” This evening celebrates Einstein and the music that inspired and helped him in his work, with music by Mozart, Dutilleux, and a World Premiere of a Festival commission by Nicolas Namoradze called Gravity: Concerto for Double Bass and String Ensemble. An exhibit of Albert Einstein’s artifacts and mementos will also be on display.
