In a few weeks, we’ll be back on board with our first concert of 2011: Stockhausen’s MANTRA and Boulez’s MARTEAU (Le marteau sans maitre). Mantra, for 2 pianists with percussion and live electronics, is a 70-minute ring-modulation experience diffused through 4 channels. Marteau, which we performed as part of the Boulez Festival earlier this season to much acclaim, is the seminal piece scored for voice, alto flute, viola, guitar, vibraphone, and xylorimba. Both works will be performed in Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 at 8pm.
Also, video clips of Morton Feldman’s Viola In My Life (I) and Earle Brown’s Novara are now up on YouTube! This was from our December concert at New England Conservatory (in case you missed it – or want to hear it again!).
Here’s Feldman’s Viola In My Life (I), with violist Sarah Darling:
