Musiqa presents New Music From Near and Far, Part II
Musiqa presents the second in its inaugural series of programs. The program includes a series of works by eminent American composers working in a wide variety of musical styles: Donald Crockett's Wet Ink for violin and piano; David Crumb's Mood Sequence for cello and piano; Sean Friar's Scale 9 for clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion; Pieter Lieberson's Raising the Gaze for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion; Stacy Garrop's Remnants of Nine for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion; and Dan Welcher's Remembrance in Black and White for soprano and ensemble. As part of its focus on collaboration with artists in related fields, Musiqa invites Inprint's Rich Levy, who will round out the program with readings of poetry. Finally, "The Infinite," a poem by Levy, will be performed in a new setting by Musiqa artistic director Anthony Brandt.
Musiqa will host a special interview with composer Dan Welcher before the concert. KUHF host St. John Flynn will host the interview onstage beginning at 7:15 pm.
