For much of the early 1700s, Italian composer Domenico Scarlatti dazzled audiences with hundreds of intricate, genre-bending harpsichord sonatas influenced by Spanish and Portuguese folk music. For much of the 20th century, American composer John Cage dazzled audiences with experimental compositions influenced by Indian and Chinese musical theory. In this eclectic concert at St. Paul's James J. Hill Center, piano virtuoso David Greilsammer performs sonatas by both composers, bridging the 200-year gap between the artists by highlighting the similarities between their passionate, provocative and colorful works. This time-transcending performance is a musical mashup you won't soon forget.
