Event description

Description

The history of music composition is full of iconoclasts and freethinkers who forged unique artistic voices that challenged musical norms and enriched our lives forever. In this concert, we celebrate four of them, including Czech composer Leos Janacek, who was famous for his use of Moravian folk music and rhythms drawn from speech, American composer Jordan Kuspa, who pays tribute to the American ethos of individualism, and German composer Paul Hindemith, whose music was deemed “degenerate” by the Nazis. We also include a world-premiere by our own Bay Area iconoclast, composer-in-residence Julie Herndon, who is creating a new mixed-media work in collaboration with projection artist Patricia Robinson.

Program

  • Leos Janacek - Mladi

  • Julie Herndon - new work (world premiere)

  • Jordan Kuspa - Flybys

  • Paul Hindemith - Septet for Winds
