“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.

“ . . . 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.

SPONSOR 
Jon and Bobbie Gilbert

SUPPORT
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.

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.

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.

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.

Since debuting in 2006 at Carnegie Hall, they have performed throughout the U.S. as well as in France, the U.K., Belgium, Panama, Canada, and in South Africa, where under the auspices of the U.S. State Department they spent two weeks on tour performing concerts and participating in outreach activities.

7:30 pm

For ticket information call 858-534-4637 or go to lajollasymphony.com

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.

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.
