Messiaen, Fineberg, and Murail at the Barnes Foundation

Marilyn Nonken.

On Thursday, May 18, at 8.00pm, my lovely wife Marilyn Nonken takes the stage at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia to perform “The Spectral Piano,” featuring music by Olivier Messiaen, Joshua Fineberg, Dominique Troncin, and Tristan Murail. Tickets are $30 ($20 for members and $10 for students); the Barnes is located at 2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway. More information at the Barnes Foundation web site here.

A few months ago, Robert Whalen and Katherine Skovira of the Barnes Foundation spoke to Marilyn about spectral music and her upcoming concert for the foundation’s VERSO podcast series. You can hear that conversation below.
