St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble + Adam Rosenblatt

Apr 12 | Fri | 7:30 PM | $25
View Website

A diverse program of old and new music juxtaposes contrasting works, including Thierry de Mey's theatrical Light Music, performed by percussionist Adam Rosenblatt. Through the use of motion sensors and interactive technology, choreographed hand gestures produce light, an electronic sound score, and vivid large-scale projections. This interdisciplinary solo is bookended by the renowned St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble performing Viennese classics. J. Haydn's lively Divertimento for Strings from 1754 and J. Lanner's charming 19th century waltzes were likely scored for festive occasions. None of the works include a cello in the instrumentation -- presumably because the musicians were all meant to stand at the parties for which these works were originally composed. Program: J. Haydn: Divertimento for 2 violins, 2 violas, and bass, Hob. II:2 (1754) Thierry de Mey: Light Music for soloist, projections, and interactive systems (2004) J. Lanner: Marie's Waltz for 2 violins, viola, and bass, op. 143 (1839) J. Lanner: The Romantics for 2 violins, viola, and bass, op. 167 (1841) Leadership support for music programming provided by the Thompson Family Foundation.
