First Friday Music: concerts on the fringe

An ensemble of young classical musicians and Curtis Institute graduates, who embrace a wide spectrum of new music, are just at home in a beer hall as a recital room, and who have worked with some of the best young composers of their generation, perform three adventurous compositions of new music.

Program includes:

Children of the Fire by Gabriella Smith
With influences from the rhythms of Haitian drum circles, this exploration of the artist in exile is based on Edwidge Danticat’s Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work.

Bone Chinoiserie and the Alabastard Cowboy by Vin Calianno
A spaghetti western of classical music that takes its cues from the films of Michelangelo Antonioni and Quentin Tarantino, with an original film accompaniment.

still life with music by Ted Babcock
After such classics as the Odyssey and Beowulf, this new work delves into the sonic and dramatic landscapes of epics.
