What’s special about this program
- This three-way collaboration features expressive, new dance works created for equally expressive contemporary music.
Clarice Assad: "Impressions"
The San Jose Mercury News describes her work as “lushly film-score-ish, with echoes of black spirituals, dances from Brazilian salons of yore — and Vivaldi’s sunshine.”
Pierre Jalbert: "Autumn Rhapsody" and "Elegy"
Musiqa Artistic Board member, Pierre
Jessie Montgomery: "Starburst"
This brief one-movement work for string orchestra is a play on imagery of rapidly changing musical colors. Exploding gestures are juxtaposed with gentle fleeting melodies in an attempt to create a multidimensional soundscape.
Christopher Cerrone: "High Windows"
High Windows is a quote and has two meanings: It is a literal reference to the windows of St. Ann’s Church in Brooklyn, the reverberant space for which Christopher Corrine composed the piece; it also refers to a Philip Larkin poem in which the older author sums up the tumult of his youth.
The concert experience
Musiqa programs are full of surprises on stage. Here’s what’s you need to know about everything else:
Pre-concert talks begin 30 minutes before the show
Dress is casual, like you’re going to drinks and a movie
