What was Stella listening to?

If you’ve wondered what Frank Stella was listening to when he created the sculptures in the Scarlatti Kirkpatrick Series, harpsichordist Steven Silverman will be performing tonight in-gallery to share the sounds of the Italian composer’s sonatas. The event is sold out, but visitors to the museum today got a wonderful preview during a rehearsal. Sounds of the instrument could be heard beautifully filtering down all three floors of the galleries.
