The Well-Extended Piano

Reinier van Houdt will present the piano in its own expanding and often ephemeral universe. In his program the piano is featured as the protagonist in a fragmentary collection of journal-entries (Ferrari), as a solitary ear exploring tones within a rotating field (Pisaro), as an audioscanner highlighting the outlines of an evolving structure (Adriaansz), or finally as an endangered species, time and again surviving its own extinction (Curran).

An Evening of New Music by Michael Linton

French bass-baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer makes his New York debut in the premiere of Carmina Catulli, a 17-movement song cycle on the poems of Catullus. Tenor H. Stephen Smith, who recently performed in Carmen with the Folkoperan at BAM, premieres Seven Franchetti Songs, settings of poetry by the Italian-American polymath Cody Franchetti. Both works are by composer Michael Linton. Because the poems of Catullus deal with issues of sex in a frank manner, some members of the public might find them objectionable.

NYFOS Next | Mark Adamo & Friends

Momenta Quartet will be featured in Mark Adamo’s Aristotle (2012) for baritone and string quartet, joined by star baritone Joshua Jeremiah. Aristotle was originally commissioned by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and written for Thomas Hampson to sing with the Jupiter String Quartet. Aristotle is the setting of a poem of the same name by former national Poet Laureate Billy Collins, which explores the nature of beginnings (where “almost anything can happen”), middles (“the sticky part where the plot congeals”), and the ends that are, “according to Aristotle, what we have all been waiting for.”
