BLUEPRINTS PIANO SERIES: cosmology
May 28, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm| $15 - $20
From French Baroque to today, composers have found inspiration in the stars, the planets, our place within the vast cosmos, and how music can connect us to other-worldly realms. Explore the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau, the mystic theosophist Alexander Scriabin, avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, jazz visionary Sun Ra, improviser-composer Wadada Leo Smith, and New York composers Leah Asher and Jonathan Ragonese, as this program explores sounds and forms that deliver us far from Earth. Inspired by specific works on this program, abstract artist Peter Bruun will display and sell his original works at the concert. For this concert (season finale), BLUEPRINTS is honored to present guest pianists Sylvie Courvoisier, Taka Kigawa, Tristan McKay (presenting a world premiere by composer Leah Asher), and Shira Shaked. Co-directors Daniel Anastasio and Erika Dohi will also perform.
