Art and Music: A Duet

Parallel Stories with the Santa Barbara Symphony

SBMA's Parallel Stories​ partners with the Santa Barbara Symphony to explore the shared language of art and music with a special performance, inspired by the Museum’s exhibition Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources. This​ unique and intimate “conversation” between art forms is introduced by Nir Kabaretti, Music & Artistic Director of the Santa Barbara Symphony, followed by a recital of music Van Gogh would have listened to and been influenced by, performed by the internationally acclaimed Silver-Garburg Piano Duo and paired with select images from the exhibition.

This performance is the second in a series of three related Parallel Stories exploring connections between art forms, allowing us to see those influences at work in the process of composition, the performance of music, and the poetry of narrative from the 19th century to the present day.

These mesmerizing pianists are a part of the Santa Barbara Symphony’s 2021/22 Season, performing live at The Granada Theatre on April 23 and 24, 2022 in a program titled “Romance in a New Key.”    

This event is in person at Santa Barbara Museum of Art's Mary Craig Auditorium.
