In conjunction with the exhibition "Mary Cassatt Prints: In the Company of Women," pianist Rosanne Vita Nahass explores the works of American composers Amy Beach and Charles Tomlinson Griffes, contemporaries of Cassatt who, like her, were influenced by their interactions in European culture.
Beach (1867–1944) is considered the first true professional female composer of the United States; her struggles to gain independence and recognition in her chosen art often parallel those of Mary Cassatt. Griffes (1884–1920) was profoundly influenced by French Impressionist music and composed some of the most innovative works in American music of the early Modernist period. In addition to Beach's compositions and Griffes's rarely heard "Piano Sonata," this concert features a masterpiece of French Impressionism, Maurice Ravel's "Miroirs." Tickets: $15 nonmembers, $10 museum members, and $5 for Rutgers faculty, staff, and students (with valid ID). Tickets are sold on the day of the concert on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning at 12:30pm. The ticket price for nonmembers does not include museum admission.
