A Chatter ABQ concert at Las Puertas

Okay, so sell your suit and tie and come and live with me. Not really, but do take some time out from all that rock and rolling, dearie. They have classical music on Sundays you know, right? And of course, Chatter ABQ is the place to be as far as experiencing the sublime goes. This weekend the innovative local arts music programmer presents a concert featuring the music of Charles Ives, perhaps the first great American Modernist composer. His work is dense and often poly-tonal telling many musical stories in sequence or as contrapuntal elements. Though his lush, discursive and complex work was little regarded in his lifetime, over the years it’s gained much credence. On Sunday, July 29 join members of Chatter (pianist Emanuele Arciuli, flautist Jesse Tatum and violist Kim Fredenburgh) at Las Puertas (1512 First Street NW) for a rousing performance of one of Ive’s most acclaimed works, The Concord Sonata, a work that the composer said was his “impression of the spirit of transcendentalism.” It’s heady but hugely listenable. Members of the Albuquerque Poetry Slam Team will get down before the music begins. 10:30am • $5 to $15 • All-ages.
