Night Cadenza on Now Is the Time
It’s different ways to say good night on Now is the Time, Sunday, April 28th at 10 pm. Alex Freeman’s solo piano Night on the Prairies leads to a sextet in Jeremy Beck’s In Flight until Mysterious Night (and do we hear Steely Dan in there?). Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble then runs with the Night of the Flying Horses of Osvaldo Golijov.
Then, two quartets. Night Blossoms of Mary Jane Leach is a haiku for four singers, and the four string instruments of Kronos play Terry Riley’s long-breathed Cadenza on the Night Plain, out into that good night.
Alex Freeman: Night on the Prairies
Jeremy Beck: In Flight until Mysterious Night
Osvaldo Golijov: Night of the Flying Horses
Mary Jane Leach: Night Blossoms
Terry Riley: Cadenza on the Night Plain
