Songs of Life- Bach on Turtle’s Back.

Birth, death and rebirth resonate as connective themes of human expression. Using the violin Sonatas and Partitas of J. S. Bach, the artistic explorations of Brian Solomon (Ojibwe/Irish), and selected Bach arias, Songs of Life- Bach on Turtle’s Back explores these profound concerns within a uniquely mixed North American context. This is year one of a three year project. This concert is supported by the Pluralism Fund.

Eybler Quartet - Esterházy to Vienna: a road well traveled

Classical composers wrote music for a host of circumstances. Often for the open market, sometimes with an individual performer in mind and in other moments to the specification of a commission. Join the Eybler Quartet as they continue their exploration of the birth and development of the string quartet. “There is no denying the Eyblers’ verve and delicacy of touch ...” – The Times of London.

Nosferatu

Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Graf Orlok (as portrayed by Max Schreck) is a nightmarish, spidery creature of bulbous head and taloned claws–perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned. Nosferatu was an atypical expressionist film in that much of it was shot on location. Our three performers will improvise a live film score to this silent classic.
