Gail Archer

Internationally renowned star concert organist Gail Archer celebrates the distinctive voice of organ music in The Muse’s Voice: A Celebration of International Women Composers – a five-concert series touring the churches and synagogues of New York City. Performing a colorful collection of organ music spanning 19th – 21st century female composers, Archer is slated to premiere two works: the New York premiere of The Everlasting Crown by Judith Bingham; and the world premiere of And the Greatest of These is Love by Alla Borzova. Hailed for championing contemporary organ music by female composers, Archer will also feature works by Nadia Boulanger, Jeanne Demessieux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Judith Bingham and Jennifer Higdon, to name a few. Several of these works are being recorded for Archer’s next album to be released in Spring 2013.

Here are some things Allan Kozinn of the New York Times had to say about the Diotima when he heard them play in New York last January:

January 18, 2011

Capturing Shifts Between Ecstasy and Anguish

The Diotima Quartet, based in Paris, looks as if its members were not long out of the conservatory and plays with the energy and passion of a newly minted ensemble. But it has been building its reputation for the last dozen years, largely through its new-music performances and an eclectic discography.

…Janacek’s “Intimate Letters”: The quartet captured the composer’s continual shifts between ecstasy and anguish with a sound that embraced reverie and tumult, lushness and abrasiveness, melodic richness and stark angularity…

…The Ravel Quartet: The haunting juxtaposition of a dark-hued theme and its tremolando accompaniment was perfectly balanced, and muted passages played with a vibratoless, almost organlike tone were especially affecting. ..

Their repertoire of the Diotima String Quartet ranges from Haydn to the composers of our time, with particular focus on the Classical period, French Romanticism, the early Twentieth Century, and a selection of major works from the last 50 years. An equally significant part of their activity is the performance and dissemination of newly commissioned works. Performances include Wigmore Hall, Library of Congress, Frick Collection, Venice Biennale, Musica Strasbourg, Auditorium du Louvre. Residencies: Harvard and University of Minnesota, Kunstfest Weimar, Wissenschaftskolleg Berlin, Fondation Royaumont.

Loosely based on Ovid's mythical drama Metamorphoses in a libretto by Miriam Seidel, Judgment of Midas details an epic musical battle between the gods Pan and Apollo. With King Midas as the witness-Pan, maker of "street music" and Apollo, maker of the gods’ music, compete for supremacy as the foremost divine musician. What follows is a musical battle of diverse orchestration that showcases Kamran Ince's unique talents and genius as a composer. Mixing together an assortment of world, ethnic, popular and folk music, Ince uses his versatile compositional talents to depict the mythical musical duel of the gods. Recognized nationally and internationally, Kamran Ince finds in Judgment of Midas a vehicle for a classic mythic story and a musical triumph.
