Known for his “abundant energy, powerful fingers, big sound, and natural musicality,” (Gramophone), pianist Christopher Atzinger presents a unique concert inspired by the relationship between American impressionist painter Childe Hassam and the music of 19th-century American composer John Knowles Paine, considered one of the first important American composers. Paine and Hassam spent summers together at Appledore Island off the coast of Maine, home of a famed salon where artists of all types convened to share inspiration and ideas. Atzinger’s program will also include work by composers who influenced (or were influenced by) Paine, such as Robert Schumann and John Alden Carpenter. Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended.

For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented it’s Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 50-minute concerts that draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship.

In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of works by Childe Hassam and other American impressionist painters, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
