Acqua Alta (High Water) | Jenny Q Chai

Jenny Q Chai

Acqua Alta (High Water) will be the anchor of a month-long programming focus on global warming at Spectrum, with sound and video installations based on data curated by Ian Fenty, whose doctoral dissertation at MIT addressed ’s new studied of global warming and its effects on our oceans. John Cage’s athletic Water Walk (see schematic attached/above) is the centerpiece of the program. Written in 1959, John Cage’s Water Walk is scored for a number of objects, including bathtub, rubber duck, prepared piano and five radios. It was originally premiered on the Italian TV show Lascia O Raddoppia. Ninnananna from Marco Stroppa’s Miniature Estrose—a lullaby in which its out of worldly tremors creates a gentle watery shimmer and explores the two relations between two states of mind, with initiated knowledge one might trace hidden lullabies by Brahms, Schubert, Stravinsky and an Italian lullaby Stroppa’s mother used to sing to him. Scarlatti and Gibbons provides the sensation of traveling back in time in Italy, while Debussy and Ravel adds their watery imagery. Three world premieres by Nils Vigeland, Milica Paranosic and Michael Vincent Waller reflect contemporary composers’ take on global warming. To complete the experience, the stage and the hall are transformed with projections of Italian Renaissance paintings, which stunningly portray the luminous beauty of Italy.

Musicians from Marlboro III

Celebrating its 48th season during 2012-2013, the Musicians from Marlboro touring program was created as an extension of Vermont’s Marlboro Music Festival, founded in 1951. The tours are noted not only for joyous performances of both lesser-known works and chamber music classics, but also for offering valuable experience to artists at the beginning of their careers. Since inception, the Musicians from Marlboro tours have introduced such great talents as Richard Goode, Yefim Bronfman, Jaime Laredo, Murray Perahia, Paula Robison, András Schiff, Peter Serkin, Richard Stoltzman, and Benita Valente, as well as many of the exceptional artists now heard in the Emerson, Juilliard, and Tokyo Quartets, and the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio.

Also lined up are Angélica Negrón premiering a new set of songs for voice, clocks, accordions, toys, and electronics and violinist Andie Springer performing “Dandelion” by Mark Kouyoumdjian, exploring childhood manipulations of old home movies. Trumpeter Hugo Moreno performs “Toying” by Chelsea Music Festival Composer-in-Residence Eric Nathan. Saxophones wail as the New Thread Quartet delivers music from the lyrical to the virtuosic.
