Face The Music

Jazz and rock music meet contemporary classical in this second concert that the sensational Face the Music bring to P.S. 69Q. Central to the program are three pieces that mix jazz and rock with contemporary classical sounds: Andy Didorenko’s Concerto for Two Violins; hip-hop violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain’s La La La La for chamber orchestra; and FTM’s own Ethan Cohn’s Lionfish for large jazz combo. The concert also includes Philip Glass’ sparkling String Quartet No. 5, as well as a quartet by one of the Philip Glass Ensemble’s current members (David Crowell’s Open Road). Finally, FTM will present a work by the young Abe Gold, his Four NYC Pieces, bringing the sounds of the city – car horns included – to the stage. Read our interview of Vasudevan Panicker, managing director of Face the Music.
