Pianist Kathleen Supové and guitarist James Moore pair up in their new duo A Musical Sacrifice. “As we got to know each other over the years, finding ourselves at similar concerts and with similar interests, we thought it made sense to work on a project together,” says James Moore. Riffing off the idea of A Musical Offering by Bach, “we decided to call ourselves A Musical Sacrifice, because of the way we throw ourselves into the music.” Details.

Sunday matinee features the ground-breaking pianist Anthony de Mare in a program of 12 diverse works, all of which are “re-imaginings.” The program will feature 8 pieces from The Liaisons Project, de Mare’s landmark commissioning and concert project for which 36 composers have re-imagined the songs of Stephen Sondheim for solo piano, as well as the New York premieres of James Mobberley’s Peace Study, an electro-acoustic Tibetan-chant excursion inspired by the Dalai Lama, and Irish composer Geoff Sheil’s electro-acoustic take on a vintage Newport cigarette commercial. The program will also feature Mobberley’s re-imagining of Terry Riley’s seminal In C and the world premiere of Frederic Rzewski’s The News, written especially for Tony—a wilder re-imagining of Sondheim’s iconic song I’m Still Here. The Liaisons portion of the program includes works by Steve Reich, Nico Muhly, Eve Beglarian, Annie Gosfield, Phil Kline, Mason Bates, David Rakowski, and Ethan Iverson of The Bad Plus. Details.

Concert 5
The Living Earth Show
Sunday, May 12 at 8pm

Works by
Samuel Carl Adams
Timo Andres
Christopher Cerrone
Brian Ferneyhough
Adrian Knight
Ken Ueno

Performed by
Andrew Meyerson, percussion
Travis Andrews, guitar

The Living Earth Show, the San Francisco-based duo with guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andrew Meyerson, bring a bevy of electronic accouterments and their considerable musicality to the stage in this final “shredfest” concert of the Festival. Representing a new generation of emerging artists, their tireless devotion to new genres of music is demonstrated by the fact that they memorize all the music they perform. The concert highlights the similarities inherent within the extremes of
complexity and minimalism, tonality and microtonality, and the classical music establishment and immensely talented but irritatingly-termed “New New York School”of young up-and-coming composers.
