On Tuesday October 20th at 7:30 PM the Kronos Quartet will perform George’s Crumb’s Black Angels . The venue of choice is perhaps what makes this performance special --- The Intrepid Sea, Space and Air Museum, located in New York City. The USS Intrepid is the legendary American aircraft carrier that served in the Pacific theatre of World War II, in Vietnam, and as the recovery vessel for Gemini and Mercury space missions. The Museum is currently running an exhibit that showcases the Intrepid’s service during the Vietnam War and joins in the celebration of the conclusion of the war 40 years ago. The Kronos Quartet performance is part of a public program that will enhance the exhibit. Black Angels was inspired by the sounds of the Vietnam War, so to have a performance take place on a vessel that fought in Vietnam is an innovative way to remember and honor those involved. Following the performance NPR host John Schaefer and Crumb expert, Dr. Steven Bruns (University of Colorado) will lead a discussion with the Kronos Quartet to explore how music is ability to reflect on such sensitive matter.
