The Lost Chord: January 14 - Curiouser and Curiouser

cabinet_of_curiosities_1690.jpg

Cabinets of curiosities, also sometimes referred to as “wonder rooms,” were small collections of extraordinary objects, strange and often fanciful precursors of today’s museums, which attempted to categorize and explain oddities of the natural world.  We’ll hear three examples of musical equivalents: Dmitri Tymoczko's “Typecase Treasury,” Michael Colina’s Violin Concerto “Three Cabinets of Wonder,” and a selection from Robert Moran’s “Cabinet of Curiosities.”  Satisfy your curiosity, this Sunday at 10 pm.
