Tenri Cultural Institute 2016
We're looking forward to returning to our beloved New York City venue! This year, we will be performing both new an old friends, Hilary Tann, Paul Théberge, Jim Hiscott, Günter Bialas and Merrill Clark. Their works use the past to reflect the present, be it musical ideas or a view of the world we live in today: Hilary Tann’s The Walls of Morlais Castle illustrates the contrasts between the time this Welsh castle was a vibrant place and its present day state of ruin, and Paul Théberge’s atmospheric Maqām, composed in 1978, is inspired by the ancient Persian and Arabic system of melodic motives. Jim Hiscott’s droll Les Larmes de Polichinelle combines characteristics of the commedia dell’arte tradition with the folk music of Naples, and German composer Günter Bialas’s warm, richly colored and occasionally humorous neoclassical Trio from 1945, makes use of such traditional forms as the sinfonia and the gavotte in a mid twentieth century, post war context, whereas Merrill Clark uses a non-vocal setting of William Butler Yeats' The Second Coming to color and inform his Sinfonia Ternion Gestalt. Be sure to check our our latest Featured Composer interview with Merrill!
