Houston New Arts Movement presents Lost Voices: Passion and Perseverance
The Houston New Arts Movement opens its 2017 Reflections season with Lost Voices: Passion and Perseverance, revisiting the first concert ever performed by HNAM. Pianist and founder Adam Vincent Clay and cellist Will Kremer perform works of suppressed Russian composers during Stalin’s rule. In this Reflections season, HNAM will perform works from some of its most memorable and well-received repertoire, along with new additions.
Lost Voices was the debut of the Houston New Arts Movement in 2010 and was sold out at Dowling Music concert hall in its original performance. The Houston New Arts Movement was interviewed on KUHF, Houston’s classical radio station at the time. Some of pieces were Houston premieres, such as those of Nikolai Obukhov, Alexei Stanchinskiy, and Arthur Lourié. The music of these composers was previously seldom heard due to Soviet government censorship and political oppression.
The January 21 performance will take place at St. Cyril of Alexandria Catholic Church, while the January 27 performance will be at Houston Piano Company.
