5pm – Debussy III: Messiaen Enveloped

            “Carte Blanche” to Visual Artist-in-Residence Makoto Fujimura

 

CMF 2012 Visual Artist-in-Residence Makoto Fujimura curates a collaborative visual arts program at Chelsea’s Dillon Gallery enveloping a Steinway grand piano with pure, traditional, and no longer produced Japanese silk and projecting images of birds, oceans, and trees through it, while pianist Molly Morkoski performs Preludes by Olivier Messiaen and Debussy’s “Reflet dans l’eau”. The wave images are from Kamakura, where Fujimura spent considerable time in childhood watching and drawing.  The Fujimura-Messiaen collaboration is in part a meditation into the tragic nature of our lives and is preceded on this program by a cello sonata by Claude Debussy, who wrote the piece in 1915 as World War I was raging and as he was suffering from the cancer that would eventually kill him.  It is a concise work filled with irony and is one of the great masterpieces of the cello repertoire.
