Chamber Project St. Louis opens their twelfth season with a program challenging our senses to go beyond what we can see, with inspiration drawn from architecture specific to St Louis and a melody from the steppes of Uzbekistan. The program begins with a piece by Kristin Kuster exploring the work of architect Tadao Ando. Ando, who designed the Pulitzer Museum in St. Louis, uses the hardest of materials – steel and concrete – but also considers intangibles such as light and wind as they appeal to our senses. Khachaturian synthesizes the rhythms and melodies of his homeland into a sonic looking glass, bringing the listener to a far-away world. Music by Haydn and Gaubert transport us back in time to worlds both familiar and unknown. We conclude this program with a new work by St. Louis composer David Werfelmann.
