CSO Chamber at the Art Institute
Truth to Power
Sunday, May 18, 2014
This event takes place at the Art Institute of Chicago — Fullerton Hall
The CSO’s Truth to Power Festival celebrates the power of the artist to act as a beacon in dark times of dislocation, war and tyranny. In his “Disasters of War,” Francisco Goya created a collection of prints denouncing war by creating a telling visual report of what he saw and in some cases, by using historical record. The composers represented on this program were impacted by the rise of totalitarianism in the 1930s, each having his own distinctive response to the threat.
