About the Event
Paula Matthusen Dead Horse Bay William Brittelle So Long Art Decade Mark Dancigers Skyline Jessie Montgomery Rhapsody No. 2 Christopher Adler Jolie Sphinx Michi Wiancko Planetary Candidate
In Paula Matthusen’s Dead Horse Bay, Michi weaves a gorgeous melody around sounds that Matthusen collected and recorded from from this historic New York waterfront, infamously littered with refuse from the 1950’s. Next up, Jessie Montgomery’s Rhapsody No. 2, a devilishly difficult tribute to the great violin virtuoso Eugene Ysaÿe, and William Brittelle’s So Long Art Decade, dedicated to late pop icons David Bowie and Prince. Mark Danciger’s Skyline is a beautiful dream-like tribute to the solo violin works of J.S. Bach, and Christopher Adler’s Jolie Sphinx discovers deep humanity in robotics. Almost every work on this program will be a Maine premiere!
