The Jewish Museum and Bang on a Can Present
Unorthodox – The Mivos Quartet plays Steve Reich
On February 4, 2016 at the Jewish Museum, the acclaimed Mivos Quartet will perform Steve Reich’s string quartets: the Holocaust-related masterpiece Different Trains, his intensely contrapuntal Triple Quartet, and the emotional and complex WTC 9/11.
This concert is tied to the Jewish Museum’s current exhibition on view through March 27, 2016: Unorthodox. Inspired by the Jewish tradition of dialogue and debate, Unorthodox presents 200 works by 55 cross-generational contemporary artists from around the world whose practices mix forms and genres without concern for artistic conventions. United by a spirit of independence and individuality, the Unorthodox artists explore a range of themes including social and political values, religion, trauma, identity, and the human figure.
