  • March 29, 8pm- Waverly Project and Ioannis Angelakis Present Mozart | Deconstruction

    Waverly Project brings together Momenta Quartet and Nefeli Mousoura for a concert that puts in dialogue the new music of Ioannis Angelakis with W.A. Mozart. Momenta will premiere Ioannis Angelakis’ quartet “Institution Imaginaire,” which, in a deconstructive gesture, draws on Mozart’s piano concerto K 414. Pianist Nefeli Mousoura will join Momenta for a performance of the Mozart concerto, while the third work of the concert will be Angelakis’ previous string quartet “ASC-4.1.-III13, Terror and Silence and Between Them a Flame.”
