Event description
Flutes Voices Masquerade features virtuosic flute performers of new music, Suzanne Gillen-Hannau and Janice Misurell-Mitchell.

About this Event

Flutes Voices Masquerade treats the mask as a performance identity that reveals myriad musical images underneath. From the elegant arabesques of Takemitsu’s Masques pour deux flûtes to the flamboyant video images of Jacob TV’s Lipstick, for flutes and boombox, the concert will play with music of madness, voices of women worldwide, and the words of Dada poet Hugo Ball. Virtuosic performers of new music, Gillen-Hannau and Misurell-Mitchell have assembled a program which ranges from Luciano Berio’s classic Sequenza I, for solo flute to Misurell-Mitchell’s Brechtian After the History, for voice/flute and percussion, to the world premiere of Song, for flute, alto flute and piano by Jonathan Hannau. The brilliant theatrical piece, Pirouette on a Moon Sliver, for solo flute by Amy Beth Kirsten and Misurell-Mitchell’s impassioned Profaning the Sacred II for flute/voice on texts by Allen Ginsberg, complete the program.

"[Suzanne Gillen-Hannau] is especially deft at those dual actor/musician duties." - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

“[Janice Misurell-Mitchell] is also an electrifying performer as a vocalist and flutist, although it’s hardly doing her justice to say that she sings and plays the flute…” - Seth Boustead, Vanishing Points CD, liner notes
