Here and There 2020 Part 2: No Exit’s online concert à la miniature
Be sure to join No Exit as they present a stirring and evocative online concert à la miniature. The program, about half the running time of a usual No Exit performance, will consist of short works, about 5 minutes or less in duration, showcasing music by some of the most pioneering composers of the last 100 years.
Violinist Cara Tweed and cellist Nick Diodore will be performing Iannis Xenakis’ exquisitely savage Dhipli Zyia along with Kaija Sarriaho’s understated yet powerful Aure. Pianist Nicholas Underhill will give voice to György Ligeti’s otherworldly Arc-en-ciel as well as to Leo Ornstein’s violently rumbling 1918 masterpiece Suicide in an Airplane. Betsy Jolas’ sublimely expressive Episode Second: Ohne Worte and Charles Delaney’s bewitching …and the strange unknown flowers… will be performed by flutist Sean Gabriel.
Listeners can find the link to the performance and also download the concert program by going to either noexitnewmusic.com or facebook.com/noexitnewmusic the night of the concert.
