From outrageous fugues to murderous madrigals, KINETIC’s season finale centers on the famously shocking Grosse Fuge, one of Beethoven’s last works. Also featured are the works of Renaissance duke Carlo Gesualdo, famous for his dissonant writing and the grisly murder of his lover, and Golijov’s Last Round for nine musicians, which evokes the spirit of the late Tango composer Piazzolla. Finally, KINETIC’s own violinist-composer Giancarlo Latta will offer his own reflections on the Grosse Fuge with a world premiere you won’t want to miss!
