Concert #1: The Sun Also Rises
Named for one of Hemingway's great novels, this first concert of the series will feature “I will not be sad in this world,” by Armenian-American composer Eve Beglarian for alto flute and electronics; the New Orleans-inflected piano trio “Roots II,” by Black American composer David Baker; "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," for bass-baritone and piano, a poem by Langston Hughes set to music by Black American composer Margaret Bonds; "Dizzy Fingers" by Zez Confrey; and the unforgettable “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires,” by the Argentine-American tango master, Astor Piazzolla. This concert will be available until September 1.
Artists include Stephanie Jutt, flute (Madison Symphony Orchestra principal flute and UW-Madison professor emerita); Stas Venglevski, Russian-style accordion (international virtuoso); Timothy Jones, bass-baritone (University of Houston); and the San Francisco Piano Trio, featuring Jeffrey Sykes, piano (UC-Berkeley); Axel Strauss, violin (McGill University, Montreal, Canada); and Jean-Michel Fonteneau, cello (San Francisco Conservatory). Visual artists include Lisa A. Frank (MacDowell Fellow) and our special postcard visual artists.
Brave New World virtual concerts will feature an engaging mix of music by women, Black and Latin American composers, and traditional chamber music greats. We pay homage to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, the 100th anniversary of Astor Piazzolla’s birth, and the celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation, Juneteenth.
