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.
