Aurea Ensemble

Aurea Ensemble at RISD Auditorium

He’s hardly a household name here, but Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (1875-1911) had a profound influence on the culture of his native Lithuania. He died at the age of 35, but wrote nearly four hundred musical compositions and produced roughly four hundred paintings and etchings. Čiurlionis had synesthesia, perceiving music and color simultaneously. Chromatic Fantasy: The World of Čiurlionis, is a premiere work by Aurea Ensemble features projections of Čiurlionis’ visual work along with music that also incorporates Bach, Scriabin, Bartok, and Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. It’s the final event in this year’s FirstWorks season.
