$20 general admission / $15 for Members / $5 for students

In The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind, Argentinean-born composer Osvaldo Golijov channels the spiritual life and writings of Isaac the Blind, the 12th-century Kabbalist rabbi of Provence. Scored for klezmer clarinet and string quartet, the work presents Golijov’s musical language that seamlessly blends various styles into a unique, evocative composition that is both contemporary and timeless.

The program also includes Johannes Brahms’s late masterpiece for the same instrumentation, the Clarinet Quintet in b minor, Op. 115.


Individual concert tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for Members, and $5 for students. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 716.270.8292, or in person at the Albright-Knox Admissions Desk.
