What’s special about this program
- This three-way collaboration features expressive, new dance works created for equally expressive contemporary music.
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.
Pierre Jalbert: "Autumn Rhapsody" and "Elegy"
Musiqa Artistic Board member, Pierre Jalbert, has developed a musical language that is engaging, expressive, and deeply personal.
Jessie Montgomery: "Starburst" and "Strum"
“Starburst,” a 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.
“Strum,” a folk- and dance-inspired piece for string quartet creates feelings of nostalgia and celebration, while weaving rhythmic and harmonic textures.
François Rabbath: "Poucha-das"
Dedicated to Ravi Shankar, “Poucha-das” evokes the sound of teh sitar, interweaving Eastern soudns with Wester melodies.
