“Obsession” at the Met
This past weekend, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art officially launched its MetFriday series, highlighting the museum’s late night programming on Friday evenings. This week, in honor of “Madame Cézanne,” the museum’s exploration of the artist’s intense relationship with his wife and artistic muse, Hortense Fiquet, Attacca, the Met’s string quartet in residence, will perform works by Leoš Janáček. Married to Kamila Stösslová, a woman 37 years his junior, the Czech composer drew similar artistic inspiration from his partner. Don’t forget to post your videos to Instagram under #MetFridays.
