Sunday Chatter

Chatter has distinguished itself in the New Mexico arts community by successfully producing a varied and often challenging range of classical performances by both local and international talent of note. This welcome trend continues tomorrow morning at the Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW). New Mexico Philharmonic concertmaster Ruxandra Marquardt and her husband, pianist Paul Marquardt, have devised a program that is notable for its wide-ranging exploration of the violin’s vast musical capabilities, to be demonstrated in concert with the complex passion of Schuman’s “Sonata in A Minor,” John Cage’s intricately postmodern yet playful “Six Melodies for Violin and Keyboard,” and a rare selection from Manuel de Falla’s first substantial work, the “Danse Espangole,” from the Spanish composer’s opera La Vida Breve. Author V.B. Price will transmit his poetry in advance of the Marquardt’s musical sojourn. This event—sure to add to your earthly experience of wonder—happens tomorrow at 10:30am. Get there early to partake in a gratis espresso bar. Admission ranges from five to 15 clams for a concert that portends the cosmic. Que chido.
