Reprisal of Eric Lemmon's "The Impossible Will Take a Little While" with the Highline Chamber Ensemble (Whitney George, conductor)

Place: The Harlem School for the Arts (The Herb Alpert Center) 645 Saint Nicholas Avenue
New York, NY 10030

“The Impossible Will Take a Little While” is a song cycle for Mezzo-Soprano, three ensemble voices (Soprano, Tenor, Bass/Baritone), and a chamber orchestra comprised of traditional acoustic and electronic instruments by Eric Lemmon. The work will be written for Highline Chamber EnsembleKate Maroney, and three voices to be premiered in Fall 2015. The work is based on poetry from the collection of essays of the same title compiled and edited by Paul Rogat Loeb.

Text for the piece includes poetry from the likes of W.H. AudenMarge PiercyJalal al-Din Rumi and Adrienne Rich. The full scope of the musical work encompasses a broad range of characters representing the poet’s intended context and their personal voices. In between sections of poetry there will be orchestral interludes that take inspiration from essays featured in the collection. The use of the text will vary, with some poems being performed as art song, and others as dramatic, spoken text. The goal of the work is to demonstrate the impact that ordinary people can achieve from small political acts. These acts mobilize and give hope to others, which is the ultimate tale of political power through democratic principles.

Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity: Easter Oratorio BWV 249

Donald Meineke, conductor

The Bach Vespers Players and Singers

Ever since the revival of Johann Sebastian Bach’s music in the late 19th century, his choral and instrumental masterpieces have thrilled audiences in symphonic halls and at Bach Festivals throughout the country. However, since 1968, Holy Trinity has returned the sacred music of J. S. Bach and his contemporaries to its intended place, the church, presenting cantatas and motets during the historic evening setting of Vespers.  This music takes on new life and renewed purpose inside Holy Trinity as it is accompanied by solemn processions, mystical chant, ancient texts, and sacred architecture—the setting for which Bach was writing. In the world of historical performance practice, it doesn’t get any more accurate. Simply put: we do Bach on Bach’s terms.

Schmelzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose w/ TENET and ACRONYM (Alto Soloist)

St. Luke in the Fields, NYC

Johann Heinrich Schmelzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose, a hybrid opera/oratorio, tells the story of the Virgin Mary after the death of Christ, as she interacts with Angels, Apostles, and others. TENET’s singers will perform the cast of characters in collaboration with ACRONYM to offer an exciting, modern-day premiere of the work since the 17th century. ACRONYM has devoted much energy to unearthing, transcribing, performing, and recording many of these long-forgotten gems from the baroque and they rediscovered and transcribed the score for Schmeltzer’s Le Memorie Dolorose for this occasion.

Prototype Festival presents: Stranger Love

At Roulette

Stranger Love follows two lovers whose romance unfolds to the rhythm of the seasons: in springtime, they meet; in summer, their love flourishes; autumn and winter, they face threats from without and within; a second spring brings resignation and the chance for renewal. Over time the frame broadens to offer an archetypal picture of human love, and ultimately, an astral envisioning of the divine, a love supreme. Stranger Love is inspired by the writings of Plato and Octavio Paz and is scored for a 28-piece orchestra (including three microtonal pianos). This work-in-progress concert of Act 1 unfolds across an expansive time-scale of over four hours, allowing the audience to come in and out at will. Stranger Love is a grand celebration of life itself, evoking the visceral thrill of a gospel revival, the ethereal calm of watching snow fall, the wonder of staring into the night sky.
