Trio Kobayashi

Monday, November 14th, 2011 8:00 pm

Conrad Prebys Concert Hall

Free


Trio Kobayashi specializes in the emerging field of just intonation music for brass. This goal is frequently achieved by using a valve tuning system developed by Wolfgang von Schweinitz and Marc Sabat. Founded to perform the music of Wolfgang von Schweinitz, Kobayashi has gone on to perform a wide repertoire stretching from vocal music of the Renaissance to collaborations with living composers such as Larry Polansky, Ulrich Krieger, Nicholas Deyoe, Marc Sabat, and Jürg Frey. For this concert, the program includes Peter Ablinger's Weiss/Weisslich 21 (version for UCSD's 60-inch tam-tam), J.S. Bach's Trio Sonata BWV 1039, Marc Sabat's Hairy, Hippy, Happy, and Heinrich Isaac's Four Pieces. The trio has performed at RedCat's New Music After Grisey and Los Angeles' Microfest. Kobayashi has recently completed recordings of the music of Marc Sabat (Plainsound editions), as well as Mark Trayle and John Cage (Mode Records). Trio Kobayashi is Zara Teicher (french horn), Matt Barbier (trombones) and Luke Storm (tuba). They are in San Diego for a residency organized by composition grad student Brian Griffeath-Loeb in association with New Music at UCSD, with support from the UCSD Graduate Student Association, Associated Students, Triton Community Fund, and Department of Music.

Eric Derr Recital

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 8:00 pm

Conrad Prebys Music Center Theatre

Free


Event Program (PDF)

 

Percussionist Eric Derr's program includes Great Hymn of Thanksgiving by UCSD alum composer Rick Burkhardt (Derr is joined by percussionists Jon Hepfer and Dustin Donahue) and Make 'em go AH! by QQ.  Burkhardt's Great Hymn of Thanksgiving (2003) takes place at a dinner table, where the sounds of conversation have been replaced by fragments of news reports from Iraq, scraps from the Army prayer manual, invented Arab folk tales, and a recurring State of Emergency pointing everywhere and leading nowhere. The sounds of the table itself struggle to bring this “conversation” into a confrontation with material reality. The piece is a trio between the functions of music, noise, and semantic meaning, wherein each function can mingle with the others, lose itself in reveries (under fields of motive force that assert themselves with varying degrees of insistence), or, when necessary, take a solo.

Jeff Kaiser Recital

Conrad Prebys Concert Hall

Free


Event Program (PDF)

Jeff Kaiser conducts his Ockodektet through his own compositions for this sweeping cast of 20. "This is certainly not a traditional big band," Kaiser says, "but grows out of my experience playing in traditional big bands and avant garde big bands like Vinny Golia's Large Ensemble (Vinny is on this gig). The music varies widely, but mostly we play modular scores I design with these players in mind, that we improvise our way through with me conducting. Modules can be strictly notated, graphically notated, or more verbal ideas. Modules are frequently revisited to create thematic coherence, but mostly, the modules act as springboards into improvisation, from solos to full band and everything in between." The Ockodektet includes saxophonists Vinny Golia, David Borgo, Andrew Pask, and Tracy McMullen; flutist Emily Hay; trumpeters Dan Clucas, John Fumo, Brad Henkel, and Kris Tiner; trombonists Michael Dessen and Michael Vlatkovich; tubists Jonathan Piper and William Roper; keyboardist/thereminist Wayne Peet; acoustic guitarist Tom McNalley; electric contrabass guitarist Steuart Liebig; contrabassists Jim Connolly (also on musical saw) and Mark Dresser; and percussionists Rich West and Brad Dutz.

Pianist Catherine Kautsky performs Bach's French Suite No. 2 in C Minor, Beethoven's Sonata No. 28 in A Major, Op. 101, and Rzewski's De Profundis. The latter is a dramatic setting of Oscar Wilde’s letter De Profundis, written in 1895 to his lover Lord Alfred Douglas when Wilde was in prison for "gross indecency".  In the letter, Wilde describes how he is spiritually transformed by his prison experience. Ms. Kautsky's performance will include excerpts from Wilde's letter. Kautsky has appeared at Avery Fisher Hall and Carnegie Hall, among other prestigious venues, and as soloist with the St. Louis Symphony, Milwaukee Chamber Orchestra, and Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. She recently recorded a CD of Debussy's Preludes to accompany an eventual book on the genesis of that music and Debussy's role in early 20th century Paris. Kautsky is on the faculty at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Reviewing her New York debut, the New York Times said that she is "a pianist who can play Mozart and Schubert as though their sentiments and habits of speech coincided exactly with hers... She gave these pieces nuances that made them meaningful on a human everyday level. The music spoke directly to the listener."

Leslie Leytham Recital

Event Program (PDF)

Leslie Ann Leytham presents as her second DMA recital Two Monodramas: world premiere of Robert Pierzak's Endangered Banana #4: Waywards (revised) and the American premiere of Martin Hiendl's Erwartung und Traumverlust. Pierzak's opera is a tale of societal belonging and destruction, with a woman slowly coming to realize her relationship to time and space, and ultimately, the annihilation of both. Martin Hiendl's monodrama is based on the short story, Kesa and Morito, by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, written in 1918. To quote Hiendl, "The novel is a ruthless psychological story about the fatalistic relationship between Kesa and Morito, [who] cannot live out their love, leading them to perversity and extreme violation and humiliation." Scenic design and staging co-created by Micki Davis and Meghann Welsh. Lighting design and costumes by Leslie Ann Leytham. Sound design and electronics by Jason Ponce. Ensemble featuring members of the UCSD Music graduate community and conducted by Nicholas Deyoe.

West Coast premiere of UCSD composer Lei Liang's Verge, conducted by Steven Schick. Also on the program: Brian Ferneyhough's Bone Alphabet, Bártok's Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta, and UCSD composer and music grad student Chen-Hui Jen's through drifting moons.

Liang explains the genesis of Verge: "This piece was composed on the verge of an exciting moment in my life: the birth of our son Albert Shin Liang. Albert’s musical name – A, B (Bb), E, D (re) – asserts itself in different configurations and disguises as basic harmonic and melodic material. His heartbeat also makes an appearance in the form of changing tempi and pulsations. In a sense, I composed the piece in order to make a musical amulet for Albert. On a technical level, I was fascinated by the dialectical relationship between the convergence and divergence of musical voices found in the traditional heterophonic music of Mongolia. There, the functionality of a principal line and its accompaniment can interchange, and often not synchronously. The 18 strings are divided into antiphonal groups: left versus right, front versus rear. They diverge into various sub-ensembles, quartets, and also appear as 18 virtuosic soloists. Near the end, they converge into a singular voice."

Verge was commissioned by the New York Philharmonic and its Music Director, Alan Gilbert. It premiered on December 17, 2009 in Symphony Space at the inaugural concert of the Philharmonic’s new music series CONTACT!, conducted by Magnus Lindberg.

Event Program (PDF)

UCSD's Department of Music presents a special concert featuring the music of Chaya Czernowin, the Walter Bigelow Rosen Professor of Music at Harvard University, and an alumnus of the department. The concert will feature her recent compositions performed by Department of Music graduate students, and Ms. Czernowin will speak about her music from the stage. The program includes Ina (recorded with UCSD faculty flutist John Fonville), Drift, and Manoalchadia. Ms. Czernowin earned her PhD ('93) in composition at UCSD where she was mentored by composers including Roger Reynolds and Brian Ferneyhough. She has said that she considers herself to be part of a new generation composers who have lived in many locations (in her case, Israel, Germany, Austria, Japan, and now the U.S.) and who create a new "hybrid" music that brings together a range of influences. She spoke to NewMusicBox.com about her work last year. The interview combines insightful conversation with video accompanied by provocative excerpts of her music.

Steve Solook Recital

Conrad Prebys Music Center Theatre

Event Program (PDF)

Percussionist Stephen Solook presents a concert of music by esteemed Department of Music faculty composers featuring percussion works by Chinary Ung, Cinnabar Heart, and the world premiere of Miniatures after poems by E.E. Cummings by Katharina Rosenberger for percussion and female voice. The centerpiece of the program is Roger Reynolds' theatrical work Justice. Justice, commissioned for the celebration of the Library of Congress's Bicentennial in 2000, is a fully staged dramatic work for percussionist, soprano, actress, and computer musician. Together the individual performers combine to form the inner psychic world of Clytemnestra, tragic heroine from the Greek plays of Euripides and Aeschylus. The performers explore Clytemnestra's inner vision of events that lead to her husband's murder through a dramatic reading extending from spoken to sung declamations and eventually into a wordless world of percussion.

Joining Solook for this performance are: Tiffany Du Mouchelle, soprano; Alice Teyssier, actress; Paul Hembree, computer musician. Auditory Illusion, a sound installation developed by Michael Ricca and Aldrin Payopay, will accompany this performance of Justice. The musical content of Auditory Illusion comes from Reynolds Illusion, a companion piece to Justice. The same events occur in Illusion as within Justice, however they are presented from five different perspectives instead of one. This installation focuses upon the concept of "received knowledge" a form of subconscious insight that through its possession develops awareness, which is the foundation of Justice. The installation will run from Tuesday March 6 through Sunday March 11, 2012 in the Conrad Prebys Music Center at UCSD.

Event Program (PDF)

Soprano Susan Narucki and bass-baritone Philip Larson are featured, joined by pianist Aleck Karis. Larson opens the concert with works by Brahms, Mahler, and Hugo Wolf. Following intermission, Narucki's focuses on "three composers who interrelate in a very interesting way: Alexander Zemlinsky, Anton Webern and György Kurtág. Zemlinsky was a fascinating composer. He influenced Schoenberg and the composers of the Second Viennese School, yet had his own distinct compositional path - which was no doubt influenced by his emigration to the United States before the beginning of the Second World War. We are doing a set of pieces that includes some of his earliest songs, full of lush harmonies and sweeping lyricism, as well as some of his poignant later works. I'm also doing Webern, Op.4; a set of five early Webern songs which are set to elusive and beautiful texts by Stefan Georg. And to close, Three Old Inscriptions by the great Hungarian composer, György Kurtág."

Flutist Rachel Beetz and pianist Ran Duan perform Morton Feldman's (1926-1987) For Christian Wolff for flute, piano and celeste.

For Christian Wolff lasts roughly three hours, carrying the listener on a subtly nuanced journey that explores various meditative states. Wolff is a composer and pianist born in France who relocated to the United States in 1941. Shortly after Feldman met Cage, Wolff began studying composition with Cage at the age of 16. Wolff is also known for his performances of experimental music with Rzewski and Cardew, often with sociopolitical themes.

Flog the husband to feed the children, the Hžngbo Manura's Song

Friday, May 4th, 2012 4:00 pm

Conrad Prebys Music Center Recital Hall

Free


Flog the husband to feed the children, the Hûngbo Manura’s Song: A Transnational Interpretive P’ansori adapted from P’ansori Song of Hûngbo. Pansori, the UNESCO-designated Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humankind, is a genre of musical storytelling performed by a vocalist and a drummer. This popular tradition, characterized by expressive singing, stylized speech, a repertory of narratives and gesture, embraces both elite and folk culture.  Professor Chan E. Park (Ohio State University) is a transnational artist who delivers to the English-speaking audience the text and art of p’ansori, the Korean tradition of story-singing, by weaving her bilingual interpretation in performance.  She will present from the Song of Hûngbo, one of the five classical repertoires that reminds us of the cardinal virtues of sibling bond not rivalry. In her adaptation, Flog the husband to feed the children, the Hûngbo Manura’s Song, it is less the character Hûngbo but more his wife, the invisible gender, who compellingly portrays the ironic socioeconomic challenges of the less privileged against the dictates of the state in ancient Korea.

Event Program (PDF)

Note: Three performances: May 30, June 1-2

Viktor Ullmann's powerful chamber opera Der Kaiser von Atlantis, written in 1943, while the composer was interred in the concentration camp Theresienstadt. When the opera's obvious references to the Nazi regime were discovered during rehearsal, the work was banned; it had tragic consequences for the composer and his family. Miraculously, the work survived.

The story is a type of fable. After a protracted and violent war, Death discovers that his job has been taken away from him by the Der Kaiser von Atlantis. Death decides to go on strike; all of a sudden the concept of war, victory and defeat becomes irrelevant. The result is moving and heartbreaking.
 
 
The cast includes sopranos Tiffany Du Mouchelle, Bonnie Lander and Alice Teyssier, guest artists Vince Vincent, Gerald Seminatore and Ryan Reithmeierand, and UCSD Professor Philip Larson in the role of Death. Professor Steven Schick conducts UCSD's new music ensemble palimpsest. The production team also includes Orli Nativ, costume designer (UCSD Department of Theater and Dance), as well as scenic designer Gaeun Kim.
 
Der Kaiser von Atlantis is an initiative of kallisti, whose mission includes presenting works of modern music theater in an intimate setting, led by Susan Narucki.

Event Program (PDF)

Note: Three performances: May 30, June 1-2.

Viktor Ullmann's powerful chamber opera Der Kaiser von Atlantis, written in 1943, while the composer was interred in the concentration camp Theresienstadt. When the opera's obvious references to the Nazi regime were discovered during rehearsal, the work was banned; it had tragic consequences for the composer and his family.  Miraculously, the work survived.

The story is a type of fable. After a protracted and violent war, Death discovers that his job has been taken away from him by the Der Kaiser von Atlantis. Death decides to go on strike; all of a sudden the concept of war, victory and defeat becomes irrelevant. The result is moving and heartbreaking.
 

The cast includes sopranos Tiffany Du Mouchelle, Bonnie Lander and Alice Teyssier, guest artists Vince Vincent, Gerald Seminatore and Ryan Reithmeier, and UCSD Professor Philip Larson in the role of Death.  Professor Steven Schick conducts UCSD's new music ensemble palimpsest. The production team also includes Orli Nativ, costume designer (UCSD Department of Theater and Dance), as well as scenic designer Gaeun Kim.

Luigi Nono's "Hay que caminar” Soñando and La Lontananza Nostalgica Utopica Futura: a staging for a theater. Walking in Toledo in 1985, Luigi Nono stumbled upon a wall spray painted with the words, “No hay caminantes, hay que caminar”—There is no path, there is only walking. The phrase profoundly moved Nono, influencing his final compositions. “Hay que caminar” Sonando and La Lontananza Nostalgica Utopica Futura were Nono’s last works.  Both instruct the performers to physically move themselves between musical sections, “as if searching.”  For this performance, both pieces are given fully theatrical stagings by director Tom Dugdale in UCSD's cavernous Mandeville Auditorium. Performed by János Négyesy, violin and Päivikki Nykter, violin and sound projection.
