Set amid MOCA’s dynamic architecture - a study in geometry - this concert will create a microcosm of shape, space, and sound. For the prelude, cellist Julie Albers and Patrick Castillo decode music inspired by numbers but separated by 200 years. The concert features Julie Albers (cello), Gabriel Cabezas (cello), Amy Schwartz Moretti (violin), and Dimitri Murrath (viola) performing two works: Iannis Xenakis: Kottos for solo cello, and J.S. Bach: Goldberg Variations, arranged for String Trio.
 
Mesmerized by mathematics, Iannis Xenakis was a renowned architect and composer. A mix of delicacy and stark primitivism, his Kottos contrasts sharply but beautifully with the crystal-clear structure of Bach's iconic Goldberg Variations, a work of transcendent beauty that relies on the number 3 as basic thematic material.
