«classic meets art» goes into the second round

This time, works by the American artist Lorna Simpson meet music by Bryce Dessner.

The Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and Hauser & Wirth Zurich have started a new collaboration this year. The musicians activate the exhibition spaces of the gallery and create an exciting dialogue between art and music. Several times a season, they put together a short programme that relates to the works on display.

At the second concert of "classic meets art", new works from the "Special Character" series by the American artist Lorna Simpson will meet a string quartet from the Tonhalle-Orchester Züric. Excerpts from works by the American composer and guitarist Bryce Dessner, the current Creative Chair of the Tonhalle-Orchester Züric, will be played.
The setting will be provided by a brief introduction to the exhibition and the musical programme as well as a closing drink at the bar.
