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.

The DIOTIMA recorded Hugh Levick's three string quartets for Signature Records in Paris. THE UNIMAGINED: PREPARATIONS FOR THE UNKNOWN will be released in March.

The Interpretations concert at Roulette will be the World Premiere of two of Levick's quartets.

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

By ALLAN KOZINN
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. ..

http://www.quatuordiotima.fr

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.

Present Music & Milwaukee Opera Theatre

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.

Oteri ("passionate" -San Francsico Chronicle), and Raul Quines ("highly imaginative" -Sir Georg Solti). Featured performers include flutist Valerie Coleman (of the Grammy-nominated Imani Winds), clarinetist Michiyo Suzuki (of the Grammy-nominated Absolute Ensemble), as well as the intrepid violinists Lynn Bechtold, Mioi Takeda, and Yibin Li, renowned cellist Michael Midlarsky, and the exceptional pianist Dimitri Dover. Don't miss this fun chamber music event, plus a reception, at the Turtle Bay Music School's Richmond Room (244 East 52nd St).

'The Rite of Spring - Through an Eclectic Spectrum' by Gene Pritsker
The Cutting room
44 E 32nd Street, NYC
United States
(212) 691-1900
http://tickets.thecuttingroomnyc.com/event/245317-rite-spring-through-new-york/

Tickets: 15
performed by Sound Liberation:
Chanda Rule - voice, LeeAnet Noble - percussion/rap/tap dance, Franz Hackl - trumpet, Greg Baker - guitar, Dan Cooper - 7-string bass guitar / flute, Gernot Bernroider - drums and Gene Pritsker on guitar/rap/Di.J.


The Rite of Spring was premiered on the 29th of May in 1913 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France. The ballet caused quite a stir with its sexual and unconventional movements as well as Stravinsky's unique and avant-garde music. It has been reported that the performance caused a riot, where people were literally out of their seats jumping and pounding one another. I always regarded this as the first mosh pit of the 20th century. As a teenager studying music, I was strongly influenced by 'The Rite of Spring'. I listened to it over and over until what sounded like noise at first revealed itself to be the most incredible piece of music I have ever heard. I have always wanted to reinterpret this music through my own experience. On April 28th at the Cutting Room, with my band Sound Liberation and 100 years after its premiere in Paris, I will present my 45 minute composition. This new look at 'The Rite' interprets the various elements of this music using my eclectic methods and ideas: writing hip-hop and jazz songs, using improvisational techniques (like the ones used in African and Indian music), incorporating DJ and electronic elements and employing the various genres and techniques that have been developed since the premiere of this masterpiece
