It comprises seven compositions for diverse instrumental ensembles which incorporate improvisatory and spatial strategies to ask fundamental questions about location, orientation, belonging, and seeking sanctuary. The Torres Cycle invites humans to engage in processes of reconciliation between us and the places we inhabit and their histories. The Torres Cycle was released as an album by the New York-based label New Focus Recordings in April 2022.

My first UC San Diego recital, "Apparition," showcases highly contrasting pieces that yet revolve around themes of internal and external presence. First, S Whiteley’s sonically and visually intriguing new work “shadow work” blends cello, live electronics, interactive lights, and choreography, exploring the entangled unconscious of performer/instrument, folly, presence, and absence of the human body from the stage. Next, Luigi Dallapiccola, in his « Ciaccona, Intermezzo e Adagio ,» uses a colorful array of expressive markings serving to fully conceal and illuminate fragments of 12-tone collections. To follow, Liza Lim's "Invisibility" explores the "aesthetics of presence" in which "shimmering effects both reveal and hide the presence of the numinous." Finally, Chinary Ung's "Grand Alap: A Window in the Sky" brings the numinous to the forefront, communicating to the surrounding spirits and symbolizing a rebirth of the soul.

 

Program:

New work by S Whiteley

Luigi Dallapiccola: Ciaccona, Intermezzo, e Adagio 

Liza Lim: Invisibility

Soprano Susan Narucki and pianist Donald Berman continue their exploration of the songs of women composers in a concert to be presented on March 8, 2023, at the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall at the UC San Diego Department of Music.  The duo's recording of songs of women composers, This Island, featuring songs by Nadia Boulanger, Marion Bauer, Henriette Bosmans, Elizabeth Claisse and Irene Fuerison, will be released London's AVIE Records in February 2023.   

 

The upcoming program features works by two illustrious living composers, Tania Leon and Judith Weir, as well as works by American composers Miriam Gideon and Margaret Bonds and songs of French composer Claire Delbos.  

Although written in a wide array of compositional styles, each composer has an uncommon sensitivity to the fusion of text and music, and exceptional skill in writing for the combination of voice and piano.  

 

American composer Miriam Gideon's A Woman of Valor (Eishet Chayil) Written in 1982, the three songs of the set consist of Hebrew settings of Psalms and Proverbs.  Written in the composer's mature free atonal style, the songs demonstrate Gideon's exquisitely crafted vocal writing, with sensitivity to text setting and a beautifully constructed piano accompaniment. The concert also includes Gideon's short cycle of children's nursery rhymes, Evening Star.   

 

British composer Judith Weir's The Voice of Desire, a song cycle written in 2003, is a series of conversations between humans and birds, in which, according to the composer, "the birds seem to have a more sophisticated viewpoint than their human hearers."  With texts by John Keats, Thomas Hardy Robert Bridges and a setting of Yoruba Poetry translated by Ulli Beier, Weir's luminous, intricate writing for the piano provides a perfect framework for vocal writing of immense variety and uncommon skill.   

 

The concert will also include works by Cuban-born American composer Tania Leon. Recently awarded the Pulitzer Prize and honored at the Kennedy Center, Ms. Leon's music is characterized by its rhythmic vitality, bold use of instrumental timbre and color and inventive and expressive vocal writing.  In addition, cycles by French composer Claire Delbos and African American composer Margaret Bonds complete the program.   

 

A hosted reception will follow the performance.
