Description

METROPOLIS ENSEMBLE PRESENTS

POINTS OF DEPARTURE


5:00pm Pianists Kathy Supové, Xak Bjerken, Daniel Anastasio and violinist Suliman Tekalli, with works by Jesse Jones, Missy Mazzoli, Steven Stucky, and Randall Woolf

6:30pm Pianists Kris Davis, Anthony de Mare, and Erika Dohi perform works by Andy Akiho, Derek Bermel, Bruce Stark, Kris Davis and Erika Dohi

8:00pm Pianist Gabriel Zucker and trumpeter Adam O'Farill perform works by Gabriel Zucker


This is a marathon concert in three sets. Single ticket purchase grants access to all sets.




A collection of personal journeys and transformations from Missy Mazzoli's ghostly Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos to Jesse Jones's Handel-inspired Variations on a Fiddle Tune, and Andy Akiho's arrangement of Sondheim's Into The Woods, courageously exploring the process of inspiration, influence, and departure. Additional composers include Randall Woolf, Derek Bermel, Bruce Stark and Steven Stucky, with improvisations by Kris Davis, Erika Dohi and Gabriel Zucker.




BLUEPRINTS unites pianists from different musical genres for eclectic concerts that present traditional classical music alongside contemporary works (including premieres), jazz and free improvisation. Co-founded by Daniel Anastasio and Erika Dohi, these unusually varied programs are each inspired by an aesthetic theme or blueprint. In Visible Roads, co-created with Metropolis Ensemble, represents its first major artistic collaboration with another performing organization, with the goal of enriching the community of pianists, composers, and instrumentalists alike through creating and fostering new collaborative relationships.
