Baker & Baker Art of Music: The Rothko Room: Journey in SilenceSaturday, December 152:00 p.m.Baker & Baker Art of Music: The Rothko Room: Journey in Silence
This special Baker & Baker Art of Music program features music by pianist and composer Haskell Small from Washington, D.C. Small incorporates Rothko's idea that 'tragedy, ecstasy, and doom are the only important things in art' into his music. Small says, "In this piece, I'm trying to play so quietly as to be on the very cusp of audibility, but there are occasional outbursts paralleling Rothko's passionate nature." Small presented the world premiere of The Rothko Room: Journey in Silence in February 2011 at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. He is a Steinway artist who performs original compositions, classical and contemporary works. He is the piano department chair of the Washington Conservatory of Music in Bethesda, Maryland.
