MUSA presents the third installment of its critically-acclaimed “Art Inspiring Art” series, in which we commission new works, based on Baroque masterpieces, from emerging composers across the country. This year, we present the world premiere of a work by Boston-based composer Benjamin Pesetsky inspired by Marin Marais’ La Gamme, which uses a simple ascending scale to create a instrumental “opera” of mammoth proportions. In addition to playing the Pesetsky and Marais, MUSA will present other gems of the French Baroque.
MUSA: Laura Rubinstein-Salzedo, violin; Gretchen Claassen and Laura Gaynon, ‘cello; Derek Tam, harpsichord
