To the Balkans!
My trio piece aer- (2011) for flute, viola, and bassoon will be featured as part of “Checkmate” concert at the 180º Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria on August 12th, 2015, performed by Delphine Roche, Ashleigh Gordon, and Alexandar Hadjiev (former Ensemble Modern Academy fellows). Please check out 180º Festival‘s website — it is a roster of exciting artists including composers, musicians, dancers, theatre artists, visual artists (Polish poster art!), improvisers, and many others. There is also a small feature of my “profile” among those of other fellow artists.
“Checkmate” — a game between contemporary music and ancient music
(featuring music by Niklas Seidle, Benoit Moreau, Paul Frick, Mu-Xuan Lin, and Michael Gordon alongside works by Biber, Pandolfi, Bach, and Telemann)
Wednesday, August 12th, 2015 Fabrica 126, Sofia, Bulgaria
If you are in the area, I highly recommend this event (and the entire festival) for you to check out! It is a highly integrated, carefully curated event which attempted a contextualized realization of various expressive art forms and periodic genres. Albeit new (this is only the second year since its inauguration), 180º Festival promises great possibilities for the future of music festivals.
