Herbert Schuch (Piano)


Three first prizes at international piano competitions in the space of a year laid the foundations for the 35-year-old Romanian-born Herbert Schuch’s rise to the pinnacle of global pianism. One of the competitions was the Vienna International Beethoven Competition, dedicated to a composer whom the artist includes in his sophisticated programmes time and again. In Bonn he is combining two late piano works by Beethoven with a highly virtuoso piece by the American composer Frederic Rzewski, along with eleven works by Ligeti, which were influenced by Bartók and Hungarian folk themes.

Tetzlaff Quartet

With its pervasive echoes of Schumann’s Papillons, sparky humour and wild conclusion, Jörg Widmann’s ‘Jagdquartett’ has secured a lasting place in the contemporary chamber music repertoire since its first performance in 2003.

The Tetzlaff Quartet’s programme also includes the second of Mozart’s ‘Haydn’ Quartets and Schubert’s mighty G major String Quartet, a work that spans the gamut of human emotions.

"For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label." -The Wall Street Journal. "Enterprising new music organization" -The New York Times.

Staying in rotation for thirty years in NYC is a rare feat. In the case of a new music presenting organization, it requires not only diligence and cognizance of achievements of the past, but also an ethic of keeping one's ear to the ground for emerging stylistic and technological developments, as well as talented new composers on the scene.

On September 27th at 7pm at Gallery MC, Composers Concordance presents its 30th Anniversary Season Opener and Fundraiser, with violinist Lara St. John, vocalist Loire Cotler, flutist Valerie Coleman, clarinetist Michiyo Suzuki, pianists Dimitri Dover and Eduard Laurel, and double bassist Troy Rinker, performing music of Gloria Coates, Valerie Coleman, Dan Cooper, Daniel Palkowski, Milica Paranosic, Gene Pritsker, Dave Soldier, and Randy Woolf, among others. The event will be augmented by games, speeches, food, drinks, and a performance by the prog-rock trio Erbium, with guest guitarist Peter Fabrizio. Directors and newly-appointed board members will outline the 'Anniversaires' season ahead, chock-full of commemorative concerts, established and emerging composers, aesthetic approaches, alternative venues, and related disciplines.

Composers Concordance strives to present contemporary music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. Gene Pritsker, Dan Cooper, and Milica Paranosic co-curate the programs, and lead CCE, the ensemble-in-residence at William Paterson University. Venues in recent seasons have included Bohemian National Hall, Chelsea Art Museum, Cutting Room, Dimenna Center, Drom NYC, Gallery MC, LPR, Miller Theater, the Museum of Natural History, and Weill Recital Hall, among many others. Composers Concordance was founded in 1984 by Joseph Pehrson and Patrick Hardish, advised by Otto Luening. It has also created a new record label, Composers Concordance Records, with distribution by Naxos. Composers Concordance's overriding vision is to see contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.

The Britten Sinfonia premieres Sir John Tavener’s last major concert work, Flood of Beauty (Saundarya Lahari).

Based on a Sanskrit poem by the 9th-century philosopher and poet Sankara, the piece is an attempt to show the rapture and bliss of the Divine Being through Hinduism – following Tavener's many revered musical journeys through Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

Flood of Beauty was devised by the late composer, who would have turned 70 this year, to be performed with the instruments of a normal symphony orchestra, but all spaced around the auditorium – with Indian classical instruments tabla and sitar completing the ensemble.

'The audience, so that they are, as it were, "surrounded" by bliss and beauty' Sir John Tavener

SALASTINA MUSIC SOCIETY CELEBRATES
FIVE YEARS WITH FIVE YOUNG L.A. COMPOSERS
In this season premiere event, Salastina Music Society will feature the music of five composers local to the Los Angeles area. Between them, they have won multiple Grammy awards, written music for film and TV, hold professorships at prestigious universities, and have numerous important commissions to their credit. Each composer will be interviewed on-stage before his composition is performed.

The composers whose works are featured in this program are: Jeremy Cavaterra (Salastina Music Society Composer in Residence), Andrew Norman (Rome Prize recipient, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Composer in Residence, and assistant professor at the USC Thornton School of Music), Adam Schoenberg (UCLA faculty, Charles Ives and Morton Gould prize winner, Kansas City Symphony Composer in Residence), Christopher Tin (two-time Grammy winner), and Philip White (film and television composer, currently for Ray Donovan and Supernatural).

About Salastina Music Society:
Currently entering its fifth season, the Salastina Music Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to presenting world-class performances of chamber music. To date, dozens of Salastina performances have been broadcast nationally on American Public Media's Performance Today. With the goals of broad audience appeal and innovative programming, Founders/Artistic Directors Maia Jasper and Kevin Kumar purposefully design each concert to be slightly shorter than the average classical music concert. The "Masterpiece Discovery" sub-series, hosted by KUSC's Brian Lauritzen, offers audiences a "guided tour" through a pillar of the repertoire. Other hallmarks of the Society are: visual and aural variety in ensemble combinations and repertoire; “free applause zones”; thoughtfully chosen new music; tangible audience participation; and extra-musical enhancements to the concert experience.

ROMITELLI: AN INDEX OF METALS

Sound Intermedia sound projection

Leonardo Romoli video art
Tony Simpson lighting
London Sinfonietta



In the final months before his death at the age of just 41, Romitelli fulfilled a lifetime ambition: to create ‘an experience of total perception, plunging the spectator into a magma of sounds, shapes and colours’. Like the light shows of the 1960s or today’s rave-culture, Romitelli’s work thrusts you into a psychedelic new landscape where your every sense is heightened. Combining an ensemble and singer with electronic distortion, video screens, a light show and surround sound, this is opera as you’ve never known it.

“This is a multimedia opera with projections, three video screens and an orchestra that's amplified and processed, in many of the ways you would normally transform a rock guitar. But it's all done live, in the moment, and then spun around the room in surround sound.” Ian Dearden, London Sinfonietta Principal Player (electronics)

Being performed in London for the first time, with the original video art by Paolo Pachini and Leonardo Romoli, it promises 'a violent, abstract narrative denuded of all operatic artifice, providing an initiation rite of immersion and a trance of light and sound.'

One cannot speak about the newest Dutch music without mentioning the work of Michel van der Aa.

Forty-three years old, van der Aa is one of the most prominent composers in his country, yet should not be seen as a model example of a contemporary musician from the Netherlands. This is mainly due to his rather weak links with the so-called “Hague school”, whose style in the present Netherlands plays almost a national role. Music of this school, centered around the figure of Louis Andriessen, exposes diatonic harmonies, a motoric, irregular rhythm, harsh articulation, brass instruments, keyboards and drums – and sounds that are dry and caustic, like contemporary Stravinsky. As almost every convention does, to begin with Neoclassicism, "the Hague Convention" resulted in the creation of works of great stature and a long series of epigonic imitations; it also secured the Netherlands in a strong position in the musical world, yet at the same time plunging the country into a certain composing depression.

None of the features of the Hague style dominates the music of Michel van der Aa, which is neither diatonic, motoric, caustic or dry – everything but Andriessenesque. For lack of a better term and for the sake of brevity, it may be best to describe his peculiar sound as a "dissonant euphony." Just as original seem to be the composer's experiments, in which he combines music with the visual layer. None of the two spheres is self-sufficient, and their close relationship comes together in an unknown form of Gesamtkunstwerk, or how one might be tempted to say, a "strict counterpoint" between the image and sound. An example of such a relationship (and of the said " dissonant euphony") is Up-close for soloist cello, string orchestra and film.
