ACO presents Eastern Wind at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall
April 1, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
American Composers Orchestra continues its 39th season with a program titled Eastern Wind, bringing five works with Middle Eastern and Indian influence to Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall. World premieres include Mehmet Ali Sanlikol's "Harabat - The Intoxicated," which uses classical Ottoman composition techniques and features Mehmet singing and playing the Ud; Saad Haddad's "Manarah," combining electronics and traditional performance practices of Arabic musicians; and Reena Esmail's "Avartan," a multimedia work with video by Neeraj Jain. In Matthias Pintscher's "songs from Solomon's garden," the composer reflects on his time spent in Israel as he creates a musical dialogue of the voices in Solomon's Song of Songs. Gity Razaz's The Metamorphosis of Narcissus takes its name and inspiration from Salvador Dali's painting.
