Gérard Grisey's Le Noir de l’Etoile

Directed by Steven Schick, UC San Diego's acclaimed percussion ensemble gives a rare performance of Gerard Grisey's cosmic Le Noir de L'Etoile (The Night of the Star), with six performers amid the audience.

Inspired by the discovery in 1967 of pulsars -- pulsing radio waves from massive stars that disintegrated eons ago -- Grisey composed the piece in 1989-1990 for his son Raphael.

Red Fish Blue Fish has played the Bang on a Can Festival in New York City, the Agora Festival in Paris, the Centro des Bellas Artes in Mexico City, and has often been featured in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella series.

NOT TO BE MISSED!

“Walking with Cecil Lytle on the rue St. Paul last June brought to mind my impression of Cecil as the quintessential ‘American in Paris’ – urbane, sage, and deeply connected to both the French and American (and especially the African-American) traditions,” recalls Steven Schick. This sparked a desire to create a program around Cecil’s special artistry. We ask him to play Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and commissioned three works with him in mind from the extraordinary pianist/composer Asher Tobin Chodos, including an original work for two pianos. Stephanie Richards solos on trumpet in Copland’s Quiet City.

During the course of the performance, a cellist, clarinetist, and a female singer sustain long tones against descending and ascending electronically generated pure waves. As they do so audible beats are produced determined by the distances between the players’ tones and those of the continually sweeping pure waves. 
The text consists of the first two words of selected stanzas of the poem, Eurydice, by American poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle, 1886–1961).

“ . . . elegant and bold, inventive and joyful.”—Times Union
Following their 2014 U.S. debut in a sold-out run in New York City—which garnered high praise from the New York Times—Malpaso have continued to play a prominent role in the renewed artistic dialogue between America and Cuba.  Representing Cuba’s expanding cultural life, Malpaso—whose name, jokingly, means “misstep”—skillfully blend unfussy ballet, their native Afro-Cuban traditions, and intensely physical modern dance. Since being established in 2012 by resident choreographer and artistic director Osnel Delgado, Malpaso have quickly become one of the most sought-after Cuban dance companies. Emphasizing a collaborative creative process, they are committed to working with top international choreographers while also nurturing new voices in Cuban choreography.

For their San Diego debut, Malpaso will perform Indomitable Waltz, choreographed for the company by ArtPower alumna Aszure Barton; Ocaso by Osnel Delgado; and Why You Follow by Ron K. Brown.

Malpaso Dance Company is an Associate Company of Joyce Theater Productions.

The presentation of Malpaso Dance Company was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

In an ambitious new work, Pulitzer Prize-winning multimedia artist and composer Roger Reynolds condenses 2,500 years of human flight—real and imagined—into an 80-minute performance, progressing from imagined flight, to preparing for flight, to experiencing flight and, finally, to considering the perspective flight affords.

Performed by the widely acclaimed JACK Quartet, FLiGHT is an immersive artistic experience that weaves together such diverse elements as the Apollo program, Plato and the mythological character of Icarus.

Performance components include JACK Quartet’s strings, various recordings and sounds, actors voicing texts drawn from different time periods and cultures, and visual imagery projected onto boxes that are reoriented as the performance develops. Videographer Ross Karre and computer musician Paul Hembree will also contribute to the performance. 

This is a unique opportunity to preview a work-in-progress by one of the nation’s most innovative and enigmatic artists. FLiGHT has been performed once previously in the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and after the ATLAS Black Box it premieres in New York later this fall.

About Roger Reynolds

Roger Reynolds is a Pulitzer prize-winning American composer known for his capacity to seamlessly blend traditional and new music in works that incorporate music, poetry, art and mythology. His work defies definition. New York’s Village Voice applauded his “wizardry in sending music flying through space: whether vocal, instrumental or computerized.”

About JACK Quartet

Comprised of violinists Christopher Otto and Austin Wulliman, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Jay Campbell, the JACK Quartet has collaborated with some of the world’s most innovative new music composers. They have been described as “superheroes of the new music world” (Boston Globe), and “the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment” (Washington Post).

Ticket information: 858-534-TIXS (8497)

Recognized as one of Europe’s most distinctive choreographers, Hervé Koubi draws creative strength from his Algerian roots and Mediterranean culture. His company makes its San Diego debut with What the Day Owes to the Night (Ce Que le Jour Doit à la Nuit), a highly physical, stunningly fluid work for 12 French Algerian and African male dancers. The piece combines capoeira, martial arts, and urban contemporary dance, and is packed with backflips, head spins, and powerful imagery evocative of Eastern paintings and Islamic architecture. What the Day Owes to the Night is danced to an eclectic score that features Johann Sebastian Bach, Hamza El Din & the Kronos Quartet, and traditional Sufi music.

Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 4
Roland Auzet - Alone: Theatre and Music for Fiona

Guest artists: Tasha Koontz, soprano; Fiona Digney, percussion

It has been a tough few years in France – a time of strong crosswinds from every direction. Paris-based circus artist, composer, and percussionist Roland Auzet fights back in a new theatrical percussion concerto written for and co-commissioned by UC San Diego graduate student Fiona Digney. The balm of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, with one of the most beautiful slow movements ever written, helps calm the currents.

Sameer Patel, guest conductor

Arnold Schoenberg - Five Pieces for Orchestra
Olivier Messiaen - Un Sourire
Toru Takemitsu - A Flock Descends Into the Pentagonal Garden
Hannah Lash - Eating Flowers
Igor Stravinsky - Symphony in Three Movements
 
The twin towering figures of the first half of the 20th century were Igor Stravinsky and Arnold Schoenberg, separated by compositional method, aesthetic direction, and personal style. Nevertheless, they found themselves in Los Angeles at the same time, two great composers in the flood of expatriates driven from Europe by Nazism. “This scene may never have happened,” muses Steven Schick, “but I have often imagined them on opposite sides of Sunset Boulevard (for a while the two lived near each other not far from the Whisky a go go) facing off across the traffic the way they had done across the chasm of artistic difference in Europe.” Three fascinating composers, each indebted in important ways to Stravinsky and Schoenberg, complete the tableau. Sameer Patel (pictured), Associate Conductor for San Diego Symphony, guest conducts.

Gabriel Fauré - Requiem

Guest artists: Helga Davis (pictured) and Priti Gandhi, sopranos; Patrick Walders, baritone; Peter Evans, trumpet; Mark Dresser, contrabass
 
Some lines end too soon. The spiritual crux of this program is Courtney Bryan’s poignant memorial to Sandra Bland and other African-American victims of violence. We’ll pair her music with improvisation, the historical voice of African-American resistance, in Rand Steiger’s Template, in a new orchestra version for trumpet-genius Peter Evans, and a new arrangement by Asher Tobin Chodos of Ornette Coleman’s late be-bop classic. We’ll remember the victims of violence with Fauré’s gentle Requiem.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.

Please Note: The Department of Music does not take responsibility for the content of external websites, Facebook pages, and other outside UCSD.

 

Copies of concerts performed by the faculty and students of UCSD Music Department are available for educational use only by the performers, composers and faculty involved in the event pursuit to all applicable copyright laws. View our Dubbing Policy for more information.
