    “A cascade of pure dance invention.” – Guardian (U.K.) on Gelabert

    “Adventurous, intelligent pianist.” – Threepenny Review on Muzijevic

    A quietly thrilling meditation on music, light, and movement unfolds within the hushed, meditative sound world of Morton Feldman’s 1981 solo piano piece Triadic Memories. Vividly rendered by pianist Pedja Muzijevic, the shifting colors and elastic tempos of Feldman’s painterly music are transformed into movement with “corporeal magic” (Guardian, U.K.) by choreographer and dancer Cesc Gelabert, and merged with an intricate color and light interplay by designer Burke Brown.

    Composer Morton Feldman at the piano, ca. 1963 University at Buffalo Music Library .

    “Superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they play, regardless of era, style or technical demand” -The International Review of Music on Tesla Quartet

    “A huge, mature, and vocally stunning performance” -VOICE Magazine on Alexandra Smither

    A program of sumptuous turn of the 20th century masterworks for string quartet by Karol Szymanowski and Claude Debussy—both exemplifying groundbreaking harmonic pursuits of the time—and Luciano Berio’s Sequenza III, which incorporates coughing, laughing, whispering, speaking, and singing into one of the great modern feats for solo voice. Performed by the refined Tesla Quartet and Canadian rising star Alexandra Smither in her first New York appearance.

    Tesla Quartet

    Praised for their “superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they play, regardless of era, style or technical demand” (The International Review of Music), the Tesla Quartet brings refinement and prowess to both new and established repertoire.

    Dubbed “technically superb” by The Strad, the Tesla Quartet recently took Second Prize as well as the Haydn Prize and Canadian Commission Prize at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition. The quartet has also garnered top prizes at numerous other international competitions, including the Gold Medal at the 2012 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, Third Prize and the Best Interpretation of the Commissioned Work at the 6th International Joseph Haydn Chamber Music Competition in Vienna, and Third Prize at the 2012 London International String Quartet Competition. The quartet performs regularly across North America, with recent international appearances in London, Vienna, Beijing, Shanghai, and Seoul. The 2017-18 season includes debut performances in Germany and Hungary, concerts across America, and a residency with the Quad City Visiting Artist Series.

    NOVEMBER AT BAC: FRAMING TIME
    Co-presented by Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival

    Framing Time is a quietly thrilling meditation on music, light, and movement centered on Morton Feldman’s 1981 solo piano piece Triadic Memories. Feldman’s spare, mystical piano piece–a work the composer described as the “biggest butterfly in captivity”–merges with an intricate color and light interplay, joined by dance and sculptural elements. Vividly rendered by pianist Pedja Muzijevic, the shifting colors and elastic tempos of Feldman’s painterly music are transformed into acute, poetic movement by Spanish choreographer and dancer Cesc Gelabert, with set and lighting design by Burke Brown.

    Award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini takes inspiration from the natural world in her new theatricalized lecture: Link Link Circus. Following her widely acclaimed Green Porno (adapted from the celebrated Sundance Channel series) that explored the sexual behavior of other species, Link Link Circus addresses the latest scientific discoveries about animal minds, intelligence, and emotions. Joined onstage by various animals portrayed by Pan, her trained dog, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, F.S. Skinner, Charles Darwin, and more, to deliver a vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal kingdom.

    Link Link Circus is co-produced by Teatre Akadèmia.

    “Māris Briežkalns and his group prove that Latvian jazz is more than just alive and well–it is the embodiment of a creative energy that characterizes the human spirit.” – Half Note Records

    Māris Briežkalns Quintet’s Rothko in Jazz is hailed by The Washington Post as “a wide-ranging musical homage to Mark Rothko’s paintings.” The evening features music by ten renowned Latvian composers, each commissioned to create a piece evoking the mood of an abstract expressionist artwork by the Latvia-born visual artist. The original jazz compositions, arranged and performed by the Quintet, are accompanied by large-scale projections of Rothko’s iconic paintings.

    Composers: Lolita Ritmanis, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Rihards Dubra, Artūrs Maskats, Pēteris Vasks, Jēkabs Jančevskis, Vilnis Šmīdbergs, Jēkabs Nīmanis, Georgs Pelēcis, Raimonds Pauls

    Māris Briežkalns, drums, band leader
    Viktors Ritovs, piano
    Raimonds Macats, cello, harmonica
    Kristaps Lubovs, saxophone
    Andris Grunte, double bass +
    Ivars Ozols, sound and visual design

    Rothko in Jazz is one of many events taking place throughout 2018 in honor of Latvia’s centennial year.
