World Premiere: Mihoko Suzuki's "Earth"

  • Nicolas Roerich Museum

Pianists Jai Jeffryes and Mihoko Suzuki appear at the Nicholas Roerich Museum to perform selections from Jai's new CD, Tangent Shores - Amethyst and music of Suzuki.

Admission to the concert is free. The Museum accepts your kind donation if you wish.

The Amethyst selections will include music of Garrett Shatzer, Richard Cionco, Devin Farney, Talia Amar-Krim, and Waddy Thompson.

Vocal guests will perform Mihoko's song-cycle "And the Hummingbird Sez...," inspired by Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, with a libretto by Martin Rowe.

Mihoko and Jai join forces at the end to perform Mihoko's pyro-rhythmic in-your-face piano four-hands "Ode to Number 14."

If you missed Jai's last appearance at the Nicholas Roerich Museum, you have another chance to hear the remaining tracks of his new CD and get your own pre-release copy before it comes out on Composers Concordance Records in April!

NY Premiere: Salonen's Karawane

  • David Geffen Hall

Danya joins New York Choral Artists and  the New York Philharmonic in the New York premiere of Esa-Pekka Salonen's Karawane.  Buy tickets here!

What can you expect to hear as you listen to our 2015–18 Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Karawane? A lot, apparently. There’s an orchestra, of course, and a chorus speaking, singing, and (in a make-believe language) whispering the poem that gives the composition its name. The poet was Hugo Ball, founder of the Dadaist movement in 1916, and his “sound poem” begins “jolifanto bambla ô falli bamble/großiga m’pfa habla horem….” The composer has provided an extensive program note that gives some clues to his work and states, in part, “I found the idea of a convoy of heavy animals, jolifants — a traveling circus most likely — oddly fascinating. I started to imagine a circus lost in time and space, in endless slow motion through strange landscapes towards the next performance with or without audiences, no purpose other than keeping moving.” Salonen provides a “road map for the journey” that includes sounds of a manic drum set, cloud-like episodes, brass chorales, and the influence of the Balinese Ramayana Monkey Chant. Perhaps Los Angeles Times music critic Mark Swed summarizes Karawane best as “a mischievous, madcap 30-minute work.”
