Classical music and lit purveyor Chatter continues to bring ridiculously talented players and authors together every single Sunday morning. Like clockwork. On Sunday, Feb. 9, classical band REVEL along with Cármelo de los Santos (violin), Joel Becktell (cello) and Carla McElhaney (piano) present works by Soviet Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich and Estonian classical and sacred composer Arvo Pärt at The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW). From Pärt’s gorgeous, chilling “Fratres for Cello and Piano”—which you might recognize from Paul Thomas Anderson’s American epic film There Will Be Blood—to Shostakovich’s "Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, for violin, cello and piano, Op. 67,” these emotive, technically challenging works provide the best of all aural worlds. Oklahoma Poet Laureate Nathan Brown’s mission statement is “tak[ing] back poetry from the hard academic grip of the ivory tower and those who too often use poetry for personal therapy.” The reading and concert starts at 10:30am, but get there early for gratis espresso. Tickets range from $5 to $15.
