Fulbright Afternoon of Music 2008
This Sunday, March 9th, 2008, at 3 p.m., I will take part in the "Fulbright Afternoon of Music" organized by the Massachusetts Chapter of the Fulbright Association and the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Enrichment Program.
I will present my Leblanc contrabass clarinet, perform Lina for contrabass clarinet solo, and play a work-in-progress live version of Saturation.
We will surely end the concert with a jazz improvisation over Autumn Leaves (Les Feuilles Mortes), with two great musicians: pianist Cedric Hanriot and violinist Leslie Levi.
The other artists will be June Park (piano), Syeda Masood (voice), Jeff Miles (guitar), and a pianist I will meet tomorrow.
- In 2006, I presented the basset-horn, and performed Backofen and Stockhausen's Seven Songs of the Days (Die Sieben Lieder der Tage, from the cycle Licht). Read the article that a fellow Fulbrighter posted shortly after the concert: Incredible Music.
- In 2007, I was lucky enough to play my composition Nigritella Nigra, for clarinet and string quartet. The string quartet featured Ariadna Rodriguez and Peter Deckers (violins), Sidney Solow (viola), and Blaise Dejardin (cello.)
I have always much enjoyed this fun event. It enables musicians with very diverse levels, origins, and styles to meet together and
make music happen.
