Modern chamber music is back to meet modern art in the Bechtler’s Music and Museum series featuring the Bechtler Ensemble. Experience a fusion of sight and sound while gaining a new perspective on selected works. This innovated classical music concert series is performed by the Bechtler Ensemble featuring Tanja Bechtler. Concerts are performed in our fourth-floor gallery space which provides the audiences with an intimate setting where they will be able to experience the soothing sounds of classical music which are usually about one hour in length. Musical compositions are chosen from the same time period as the art and, before each piece, a brief explanation is given as to why the composer and artist were paired. This multi-disciplinary approach seems to greatly enhance the experience of the audience. The concerts are described as: “exciting,” “de-stressing,” “fun and ‘informative” to name a few. Tanja, who is the granddaughter of Hans and Bessie Bechtler, adds to the mix colorful anecdotes about growing up amidst a house full of art.
