Beethoven & Art | MIAMI

Come listen to a musimelange public performance @ the MAM (Miami Art Museum)

♦ Thursday the 13th of October @ 6pm. You will experience a “melange” of Art & Chamber Music.

♦ We will be performing, with members of the MISO, the Beethoven String Quartet Op 132.

♦ The concert will be paired with the discovery of Enrique Martinez Celaya’s “Schneebett,” a two-room installation inspired by Beethoven’s convalescence and death in Vienna, Austria, in 1827, in the Anchor Gallery section of its Permanent Collection installation.

The title, Schneebett (“Snow-bed”), is from a poem by Holocaust survivor Paul Celan, a meditation on death. In one room is a refrigerated bronze bed, its surface covered in a thick layer of frost. Behind it is a large tar-and-feather painting of a snowy wood. The entry to the room is blocked by a pile of logs and branches. On the other side of the blocked doorway is an antechamber, equipped with a solitary chair from which a viewer can peer into the inaccessible “bedroom.” Nearby is an electric compressor, whose power keeps the bed refrigerated. Schneebett was first created for the Berliner Philharmonie in 2004, where it accompanied a program of Beethoven works.
