Artists at Noguchi | Bang on a Can Music Series with Iva Bittová

Sunday, July 10, 2016 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

For the sixth year in a row, The Noguchi Museum partners with Bang on a Can to present an innovative performance series held in the Museum's outdoor sculpture garden. (In case of rain, concerts will take place in the galleries.) Performances are free with Museum admission, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.


On July 10, Bang on a Can will present the renowned Czech violinist/singer/composer Iva Bittová and her son, pianist Antonin Fajt. Bittová is recognized worldwide for her unique solo style, displaying a musical worldview and visionary creativity unlike any other. New York magazine describes her sound as, "invigorating, urgent, and also soothing; it is a fusion of Old World and new-music sensibilities." The duo will perform their own compositions, improvisations, plus Moravian and Slovakian songs by Leos Janáček and Bela Bartók, arranged by Bittová and Fajt.
