Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival

The 2019 Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival presents a program that unites diverse cultures, both real and fantastic. Philip Glass’ 'Annunciation' is based on an Eastern Orthodox Byzantine chant, and the concert will begin with the singing of the original chant, followed by a performance of the Glass work for piano and string quartet, featuring pianist Paul Barnes. Barnes will perform the NY premiere of Victoria Bond’s 'Simeron Kremata', also based on a Byzantine chant. A workshop performance of 'The Adventures of Gulliver', an opera with music by Victoria Bond, libretto by Stephen Greco and design and direction by Doug Fitch, will change your perception of this hilarious and often vicious probe into human foibles. Gulliver, the intrepid voyager, puts out a fire using his bodily fluids, engages in a love scene with a giantess more than twice his size and is put on trial by horses.

As with all Cutting Edge Concerts, each composer will be present to discuss their works on stage with host Victoria Bond.

The 22nd annual Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival presents performances at Symphony Space on February 11, 18, and 25, 2019. www.cuttingedgeconcerts.org

Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival

On Monday 25 February at 7:30 pm at Symphony Space, Victoria Bond's Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival presents Paul Chihara's Amatsu Kaze (for mezzo-soprano and five instruments). The program also features the Grammy-nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko performing short piano works by Hannah Lash, Louis Spratlan, Harold Meltzer, Amy Beth Kirsten, James Matheson, Jack Van Zandt, and Victoria Bond. It is the third and final program of Cutting Edge Concerts' 22nd season. The season also includes the di.vi.sion piano trio performing works by Steven Burke, Jim Lahti, and Bond's Other Selves (February 11), a preview performance of Victoria Bond's opera The Adventures of Gulliver (February 18) and more. Details are below.

Meaning "winds of heaven", Amatsu Kaze by Japanese-American composer Paul Chihara is based on seven Haiku that deal with love, death and separation. "The poems begin in the seventeenth century, and travel to the twentieth. The songs are happy, sad, sexy, witty, and always very lonely," reflects Chihara. The instrumentation was inspired by Arnold Schoenberg's classic work Pierrot Lunaire, and as such the songs are intended to be presented and enjoyed as a cabaret. The text is sung in Japanese by mezzo-soprano Sophie Maekawa who is joined in this performance by The Horszowski Trio (violinist Jesse Mills, guest cellist Paul Wiancko, and pianist Rieko Aizawa), flutist Elizabeth Mann, and clarinetist Alan Kay.

The concert also features the Grammy-nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko performing a set of pieces for piano and/or toy piano by Harold Meltzer, Lewis Spratlan, Hannah Lash, Amy Beth Kirsten, James Matheson, Jack Van Zandt, and Victoria Bond. Each of these short works were inspired by great architecture and places, including the Copland House in Cortlandt, NY, The American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Newgrange Ancient Temple in Ireland, and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building in Manhattan, among others. All of these works were commissioned by and dedicated to Ms Shpachenko.

Tickets are $20 in advance ($30 day of show) and are available at symphonyspace.org.

Chiaroscuro: Music from Seventeenth-Century Italy

Chiaroscuro: Music from Seventeenth-Century Italy

Works sacred and secular by Caccini, Castaldi, Frescobaldi, Kapsberger, Merula, Piccinini, Luigi Rossi, and Sances from the dawn of the tumultuous seventeenth century.


The Arts at Rowan

Soprano Jessica Gould has been noted for “a dramatic intensity that honored the texts” (The New York Times), “gorgeous melismatic singing (Voce di Meche) and for “beautiful interpretation” (The Lute Society of America Quarterly). Her recordings for MV Cremona include I Viaggi di Caravaggio with lutenist Diego Cantalupi and I Diletti di Mazzarino with Ensemble L’Aura Soave Cremona. Additional CDs include projects with New World Records, Naxos, Da Vinci Classics, and Centaur. Radio broadcasts include WQXR, NPR, WPBR, and WKCR, among others. Recitals of early music include the Rowan University College of Performing Arts with Nigel North and the Sorbonne recital series at Villa Finaly in Florence with guitarist Pascal Valois. Previous soloist appearances as chamber musician include the Cassatt Quartet at the Guggenheim Museum Works & Process Series, the Clarion Society, and the Four Nations Ensemble, among others in the United States, and abroad with L’Aura Soave Cremona at the Teatro all’Antica di Sabbioneta, Villa Finaly – La Chancellerie des Universités de la Sorbonne, the Great Synagogue of Florence, Palazzo Bardi, the Istituto Francese of Florence, and the Library of San Marco and Palazzo Davanzati with Musica Ricercata. With Cantalupi she has performed at the Cappella di San Luca of Santissima Annunziata in Florence, Palazzo Ducale of Sassuolo, and in New York on the La Serenissima Festival of Carnegie Hall. As artistic director of Salon/Sanctuary Concerts, her programming has been praised as “impeccably curated” by Time Out New York, “highly original” by The New York Times, and “imaginative” by New York Magazine. Honored with a residency at Villa Finaly, the Florentine home of the Sorbonne, she is tasked with researching, programming, and performing original concerts, and is the only American ever invited to create programs for four notable Florentine institutions: Palazzo Bardi, Palazzo Gondi, Palazzo Guicciardini, and L’Associazione per Boboli.

Lute and theorbo player Nigel North was initially inspired into music at age 7 by the early 1960s instrumental pop group The Shadows. He studied classical music through the violin and guitar, eventually discovering his real path in life, the lute, when he was 15. Primarily self-taught on the instrument, he has (for over 30 years) developed a unique musical life which embraces activities as a teacher, accompanist, soloist, director, and writer. Some touchstones on the way include the publication of a continuo tutor (Faber 1987) as well as his passion for the music of J. S. Bach. The four-volume CD collection Bach on the Lute was recorded on the Linn Records label (1994-97) and is now available as a four-disc box set. The ensemble Romanesca was formed by North together with Andrew Manze (violin) and John Toll (harpsichord and organ). For 10 years (1988-98), the group explored, performed, and recorded seventeenth-century chamber music, winning several international awards for their recordings. For over 20 years, North was professor of lute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London; from 1993 to 1999 he was professor at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin; from 2005 to 2007, he was lute professor at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag, Netherlands; and since January 1999, North has been professor of music (lute) at the Jacobs School of Music’s Historical Performance Institute. Other recording projects have included Robert Dowland’s A Musical Banquet with soprano Monika Mauch for ECM (2008), Lute Songs with tenor Charles Daniels for ATMA (2007), and the Lute Music of Robert Johnson for Naxos (2010).
