Virtual Vignette with Nick Photinos and Yasuko Oura

March 24, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Virtual Vignette with Nick Photinos and Yasuko Oura
Wednesday, March 24 | 5:30 p.m. EST

Artists | Nick Photinos, cello; Yasuko Oura, piano

We welcome you to join our Virtual Vignette series, a concert series dedicated to supporting artists while bringing world-class performances and insightful conversation straight to your home. Each 60-minute event includes a 30-40 minute recently recorded chamber music performance, followed by live Q&A dialog with the performers, moderated by Festival Artistic Director Paul Watkins.

The program, entitled Time Transfixed, takes its name from Australian composer Maria Grenfell’s work, which is taken from surrealist René Magritte’s painting of the same name, depicting a stopping of time (bare walls, a clock) and also motion and movement (a train coming out of a fireplace, steam bellowing from its engine). Maria experienced this work as an eerie pause of time, much how many of us are experiencing the pandemic. These pieces all demonstrate this sense of timelessness each in their own way, simultaneously frozen and yet still moving ahead.
