IKARUS CHAMBER PLAYERS: “L’HEURE BLEUE”
The title of this concert by alumni of Carnegie Hall’s prestigious Ensemble ACJW refers to the “blue hour,” the time just before daybreak or nightfall. The venue, Duo Multicultural Art Center, has a tinge of blue as well: back in 1969, as the Fortune Theatre, it was used by Andy Warhol as a place to show gay porn films. (Joe Dallesandro was the projectionist.) Long since renovated and respectable, the Off Broadway spot hosts a concert featuring Francophone music by Messiaen, Debussy (the Sonata for Cello and Piano), Ravel (the Piano Trio), and James Blachly (the première of “La Fête de l’Été”).
