How are classical musicians like archaeologists? From the scant dots and lines left to us by composers hundreds of years ago, performers use both knowledge and imagination to construct a compelling emotional world. What is the magic language that connects composers from the past with us today? In music, as in archaeology, the study of relics from the past reveals important connections with times long ago, and can tell us a lot about who we are and what we can create in the present.
The Arianna Quartet welcomes special guest UMSL Professor of Archaeology Dr. Andrew Balkansky for a fascinating evening that will deepen your understanding of both classical music and archaeology!
