Disney Concert Hall

On my final evening in Los Angeles, I attended an exquisitely executed performance of Schubert’s sublime string quartet No. 13 in A minor and string quintet in C major in the Frank Gehry-designed Disney Concert Hall. I couldn’t help wondering what Franz Schubert would have thought of the marvelous acoustics and the performance of his music in this postmodern fantasy of a building with its abstract, soaring curves and its sharp points and edges, with rhythms flying free of gravity.

Did Franz also design the Denver Art Museum? The designs seem to have some similarities.
