About

Charles Ives’ Concord Sonata is often described as one of the greatest American piano works. Now, on the centennial of its creation, one of the most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians of our time presents the Ives Concord Centennial Anniversary Concert.

Jason Hardink, a pianist heralded by New York Times’ Anthony Tommasini for his “capacity for tenderness and grace”, along with guest flutist and MacArthur Fellow Claire Chase, presents a night of music celebrating Charles Ives’ staggeringly complex masterwork. In addition to the Concord Sonata, Hardink will premiere a piece by Jason Eckardt which combines original music with reimagined passages from the sonata, commissioned expressly to commemorate its centennial.

This riveting evening exploring the daring modernism, political progressivism, and humor evident in Ives’s Concord Sonata promises to be a concert as illuminating as the music it honors.
