Event description

Description

In this program, we explore the voice in its broadest sense: from a premiere of a song cycle by San Francisco composer Richard Festinger to an invocation of the voices of nature in Michael Pisaro’s evocative "ricefall" for 16 players and various resonant metal and wooden objects. Anchoring the program is a pair of composers, one emerging and another established: Kate Soper’s "Door" features voice and electric guitar alongside a rare performance of Gyorgy Ligeti’s landmark "Chamber Concerto," which features the voices of 13 concertante soloists.

Encouraging and mentoring the next generation of new music performers, SFCMP will once again join San Francisco Conservatory of Music students on this program.
