Premiere of The wind blows where it wills (2017) for trumpet and piano

RAM Presents: Random Brass
Thursday, March 23, 2017, 8:00 PM
The Broom Tree Theatre at Art House Astoria



In the second production of the season, the composers of Random Access Music (RAM) present new and recent works for brass instruments.

Guy Barash’s motivation to write Talkback VI for trombone and electronics was deeply rooted in the physicality of the instrument. In Deep Night (in memory of Pauline Oliveros) composer Frances White uses the consonant sounds of human speech to shape the timing of synthetic chords. David Fetherolf’s Hornwork is a 3 movement solo piece which explores the horn’s range in both the senses of tessitura and technique. The Wind Blows Where It Wills is a vocalise for trumpet and piano by composer Gilbert Galindo. Oren Boneh, the winner of RAM’s 2016-17 call-for-scores, explores concepts of individuality and immortality in his work for trombone and electronics, Behind the Forget-me-nots. Composer Gaetano Lorandi, in his … nel tempo degli amori for horn, evokes suffused sound images of moments veiled by melancholy and restlessness, iridescent memories.

Program:

Guy Barash: Talkback VI for trombone and electronics (2016)
Frances White: Deep Night for horn, trumpet, and trombone (2016)
David Fetherolf: Hornwork for horn (2017)
Gilbert Galindo: The Wind Blows Where It Wills for trumpet and piano (2017)

Premiere of "My soul waits" for piano

My soul waits is the first piano solo work I have written since finishing school 10 years ago. In this work I explore gentle abstract expressions, meditative silences, and calm repetition which evoke tender reminiscence or longing. I'm excited to share this piece with you.

Also on the program: 

Guy Barash’s Talkback I for clarinet and computer is the first in a series of compositions for solo instruments and real-time digital signal processing. It was hailed by the Queens Chronicle as being “at once divine, serene and haunting.” as big as alone by Allen Schultz was inspired by the fury of the blizzard that struck the East Coast in December, 2010 as well as the calm that preceded and followed it. David Fetherolf’s new work Fool me once was written for Thomas Pierce and Kate Dillingham, two instrumentalists whose artistry and commitment to contemporary music is unbounded. The work, episodic in nature, is a somewhat raucous, often overlapping, rarely calm conversation between the instruments befitting our current political season. The final movement of Górecki’s Lerchenmusik references the opening of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, the music of Messiaen, and a "bird" motive that derives from the name of the commissioner, Louise Lerche-Lerchenborg (Lerche means lark). Performing 0n this concert are David Broome (piano), Kate Dillingham (cello), and Thomas Piercy (clarinet).
