Nature Breaking Free
Sunday, February 9, 2014
This event takes place at the Art Institute of Chicago — Fullerton Hall
Eugene Delacroix was fascinated by the savagery of wild animals. The dancelike movement of his “Lion Hunt” suggests a perpetual struggle, a romantic craving for escape from the restrictions of a civilized environment. Both of these quartets represent a form of escape: for Brahms it was a burst of giddy freedom away from the struggles of completing his first symphony, while Bartók’s last quartet was an introspective reflection as he dealt with political disintegration and personal loss.
