Come and join the premier of new music by local composers in a comfortable friendly venue in historic church, with wonderful acoustics.
Includes Harry Bernsteins lovable “Quartetto Amabile”, featuring the sensuous strings of the ensemble. A rendezvous of a decidedly animated nature will be provide by Lisa Scola Prosek, in her spirited “Mantilla (A Game Played with Cow Chips)”. Plangent-yet-pungent meetings will also be struck up in Michael Cookes phantasmagorical “Fantasy in D(ish)”, where every player manifests an independent union.
Davide Verotta will offer the collaboration of virtuosi, in a diverting and resonant “Divertimento per Piano, Violin e Orchestra”; while Mark Alburger evokes the many loves of Alma Maria Schindler Mahler Gropius Werfel, via a dizzyingly retro-post-minimalist/modernist “Eight Waltzes”, from his opera celebrating and denigrating the titular Austro-American composer-socialite.
John Beemans “Ishi: Scene III” wraps up this evening of assignations, in cross-cultural diversities and unities that will please the ear and elevate the heart.
The venue is convenient to nearby excellent eateries. Go out for early dinner, walk to concert.
