For the fourth year the Parrish Art Museum and the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival co-present an evening of inspiring chamber music, this year inspired by the art of Clifford Ross.

The stunning Wood Waves artwork of Clifford Ross provides inspiration for a wide-ranging program including water-influenced works by Ravel and Debussy, music of Phillip Glass (who wrote an original score for Ross’s 2010 video “Harmonium Mountain I”), and Arvo Pärt’s gorgeous reflection on reflections, Spiegel im Spiegel, or “Mirror in Mirror.” As Ross remarks, "In 1877 art critic Walter Pater wrote, 'All art constantly aspires to the condition of music.' Right. Music goes straight to the heart. So what could be better for me than joining forces with Ravel, Debussy, Pärt, and Glass?” We couldn’t agree more.

The concert will be preceded by a brief introduction to the exhibition. Tickets include access to the Parrish Art Museum’s collection.
