Tavche Gravche - Museum at Eldridge Street
January 06, 2019 - China Town

The members of Tavche Gravche are virtuosos who use their diverse musical and cultural backgrounds to create a sound all their own. They merge haunting Macedonian and Mediterranean melodies with the explosive, danceable rhythms so common in Balkan music. And their expert musical abilities allow for their performances to go to fun and improvisational places. Enjoy this rare evening concert and reception as they push musical boundaries in the Museum's historic sanctuary.

Clarice Jensen (cello), Carolina Eyck (theremin), ACME (American Contemporary Music Ensemble) Join us for this triple bill, each performing an engaging 30-minute set, featuring multi-faceted cellist Clarice Jensen, expanding and confusing the familiar sound of solo cello through the use of effects pedals, multi-tracking, and tape loops to weave layers of textures and sounds; theremin virtuosa Carolina Eyck, creating layers of sound colors by merging the theremin with her own voice and improvising within the classical, jazz, contemporary, and experimental traditions; and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble, whose dedication to new music extends across genres and has earned them a reputation among both classical and rock crowds with collaborators including Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, Blonde Redhead, Grizzly Bear, Low, Matmos, Jeff Mangum, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Roomful of Teeth, Lionheart, and Theo Bleckmann.

Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera's ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenors Yonghoon Lee and Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José.
