GatherNYC presents Kafka Fragments with Soprano Ariadne Greif and Violinist
GatherNYC continues its Sunday morning concert series at the Museum of Arts and Design in Columbus Circle, presenting Kafka Fragments with soprano Ariadne Greif and violinist Alex Fortes on March 5.
Guests at GatherNYC are served exquisite live classical music by New York's most celebrated artists, a taste of the spoken word, and a brief celebration of silence. The entire experience lasts one hour and evokes the community and spiritual nourishment of a religious service - but the religion is music, and all are welcome.
Ariadne Greif and Alex Fortes perform Kurtag's seminal work, Kafka Fragments from 1986, a setting of fragments of Kafka's writing that the composer collected over several decades. The forty fragments, ranging from several seconds to several minutes long, catalog descriptions, emotions, diary entries and glimpses of the writer's life.
Ariadne Greif began her opera career as a 'boy' soprano in the Los Angeles area and at the LA Opera, eventually making an adult debut singing Lutoslawski's Chantefleurs et Chantefables with the American Symphony Orchestra.
A native of San Diego, violinist Alex Fortes is recognized for his versatility and warmth. His playing is featured on A Far Cry's 2014 Grammy-nominated album, Dreams and Prayers, as well as on Law of Mosaics, which The New Yorker's Alex Ross hailed as one of the top ten albums of 2014.
