Feb-25-19 07:30 PM CUTTING EDGE CONCERTS NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL: THE POETRY OF PLACES On Monday, February 25 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.
