Music and Museum: Art and Life Together

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
Sunday, October 30 at 6 PM

Referred to by many as the "Bonnie and Clyde of the Art World," Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely were one of the most colorful artist duos of the 20th century. On-and-off partners in life and art, the pair were known for their chic look, adventurous and spontaneous relationship, and their restlessness for creative collaboration. Inspired by this infectious duo, the Bechtler Ensemble will feature works by iconic post-romantic Swiss composers Othmar Schoeck and Paul Juon, juxtaposed brilliantly with 20th-century French composers Jean Cras and Charles Koechlin.
