The talented brothers' commission is entitled "A Dream: The Musical Imagination of Franz Kafka." To bring meaning to modern jazz the brothers turned to a short story, "The Dream," by Franz Kafka, one of the 20th Century's best writers. In the short story, a man dreams one night of his own death and burial. The LeBoeuf Brothers skillfully evoke the story's structural and narrative elements to create a blurry dreamscape of enchantment, inevitability, and one's struggle with self-perception.
In addition to their commissioned piece, the brothers will perform other original works: "Variations on a Mood," "Nevin's Air," "Circles," Revisiting a Past Self," "Song for BVG," and "House without a Door."
The Le Boeuf Brothers take the stage accompanied by Fung Chem Hwei (violin), Martin Nevin (bass), and Peter Kronreif (drums).
|Pascal and Remy LeBoeuf take the stage at 6pm|
