Programs and Tours
Professors Freda Herseth, mezzo-soprano, and Andrew Jennings, violin, present one of the 20th century's most powerful and challenging modernist chamber works, György Kurtág's 1986 Kafka Fragments. The concert is conceived as a musical corollary to UMMA's quasi-architectural installation by Danish artist Simon Dybbroe M∅ller entitled Brain, in which the modernist ideals of rationality and transparency are confronted with the uncertainty and fallibility of personal memory. The exhibition will be open for viewing from 7:30 to 8 pm and during intermission.
The SMTD at UMMA concert series is copresented by the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, with additional support by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.
Simon Dybbroe M∅ller's project is made possible in part by The Danish Arts Council Committee for International Visual Art, The American-Scandinavian Foundation, and other generous donors.
