    From Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts: “the Omer Quartet” 

    Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts

    From Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts

    1
    http://www.omerquartet.com

    Weekly Inspiration: We are excited to welcome our 2018–19 Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence, the Omer Quartet, for the first performance of their residency on Sunday, November 11th in the Music Room.

    This fall, the Quartet will also be visiting local schools as part of our Student Strings program working directly with students and performing excerpts from their program. Violinist Erica Tursi reflects on what the group looks looks forward to in their residency and what makes this opportunity to share music outside the concert hall so special:

    “Being in one of these settings takes away the concert format and leaves everything in a vulnerable space, the effect is similar to turning up the dial on the reaction level between the performer, the music, and the listener. It’s always really enjoyable and at its best, totally transforming.”

    Since 1999, one young string quartet is chosen each year as Caramoor’s Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence. The Quartet-in-Residence performs three times at Caramoor during their yearlong residency, and lends their time and talents to Caramoor’s Student Strings program, a classroom-based series of concerts, conversations, and clinics.

    Distinctive among today’s young string quartets, the Omer Quartet captured First Prize in the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions.

    Following study at the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Omer completed a graduate residency at the New England Conservatory and came into prominence in 2013 when it received the Grand Prize and Gold Medal at the Fischoff National Competition.

    Since then, they have received top prizes at several international competitions and now serve as the Doctoral Fellowship String Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Maryland.

    “Being the 2018-19 Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence is such an honor,” said Erica Tursi, violinist. “The eclectic range of genres and world-renowned artists that are brought to perform at Caramoor is so unique and inspiring and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”

    As the Quartet-in-Residence, the Omer will perform several concerts throughout the year. In their Caramoor debut in November, they will perform Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue in B-flat Major, a piece they are particularly excited to play. “The great fugue is something we all have been itching to perform. It conjures all aspects of human life including vulnerability, doubt, triumph, and spirituality. We identify very much with the idea of a quartet being four individual voices with our own distinct personalities, that when unified create something greater than the sum,” said Tursi.

    In May 2019, the Omer will also be part of a lecture/concert with distinguished composer and music commentator Rob Kapilow that will delve into Mozart’s “Dissonance” String Quartet. Together with Kapilow, the Omer will be deconstructing and dissecting it, slowing it down, and reassembling it to discover why it has come to be considered one of the most famous of Mozart’s 26 quartets.

    An important component of the Caramoor residency is “Student Strings,” a program in which the Quartet-in-Residence visits local schools and works with students to build music literacy and confidence through in-class workshops and live performances.

    The Omer Quartet has been committed to community engagement since the outset. “We’ve been highly fortunate to connect with audiences in various settings such as rehabilitation centers, shelters, and organizations who provide food services to those in need,” said Tursi.

    “Each time, we are introducing something new to the audience; whether it be the music we’re playing, our instruments, or even just our own musical journey. On the flip side, we are learning so much about what it’s like to share this music. Being in one of these settings takes away the concert format and leaves everything in a vulnerable space, the effect is similar to turning up the dial on the reaction level between the performer, the music, and the listener. It’s always really enjoyable and at its best, totally transforming.”

    In the summer of 2019, the Omer Quartet will premiere a piece commissioned by Caramoor. This will only be the second time they have had a work written specifically for them. “The opportunity to work with the composer throughout our learning process is a unique gift.”

    The Omer Quartet will give several concerts in the Music Room in 2018-19: Sunday, November 11 at 3:00pm, Sunday, May 5 at 3:00pm with Rob Kapilow, Wednesday, May 8 at 11:00am for our Wednesday Morning Concert series, and in the Venetian Theater during Caramoor’s 2019 Summer Season.

Jazz vocalist and Grammy-winner Cécile McLorin Salvant and pianist Sullivan Fortner return to Caramoor for this special evening.

    As a not-for-profit cultural organization, Caramoor depends on the generosity of individual contributors to help underwrite the music we offer and this exceptional concert is a benefit to raise funds for our Music Room programming featured throughout the year.

    “Ever since the earliest days of jazz music, the pairing of piano and voice has frequently attained a deeply personal level of communication. It’s evident in the distinct chemistry between two rising stars of their instruments: pianist Sullivan Fortner and singer Cécile McLorin Salvant.” — NPR Music

    Coming to Caramoor on October 20th, jazz double threat Camille Thurman released Waiting for the Sunrise last Friday featuring a selection of personal songs from inside and out the jazz world. She sat down with NPR’s All Things Considered to show off her live scatting skills, share how she came to receive her first tenor saxophone, and reflect what it means to challenge the idea that women can only be one or the other: vocalist or talented instrumentalist.

    Listen to the interview

    You can also watch her describe the genesis of her sophomore album, how she came to bring together her band members, and the experience of recording in a unique location all in one day.

    “From his first entrance onward, Yang was an arresting performer: now sweet, now excitable, now chaste, now florid, and always, everywhere, in command.” — The Boston Globe

    In Mo Yang, violin

    Korean violinist In Mo Yang, First Prize Winner of the 2014 Concert Artists Guild Competition, has been hailed by The Boston Globe for his “…seamless technique and a tender warmth of tone,” combined with “…an ability to project an engaging sense of inner sincerity through his playing.”In March 2015, he won the 54th International Violin Competition “Premio Paganini” in Genoa, Italy, marking the first time since 2006 that the Paganini Competition jury has awarded the First Prize. He also garnered the following special prizes: Youngest finalist; Best performance of the contemporary original piece; and Performance most appreciated by the audience, confirming The Violin Channel’s praise of In Mo as “one of the new generation’s most talented young string virtuosi.”

    These impressive First Prize honors have resulted in numerous performance prizes for In Mo with prestigious orchestras and at renowned recital venues worldwide, including his recent Carnegie Hall recital debut at Weill Recital Hall, a concerto engagement with the Danish National Symphony conducted by Fabio Luisi, and a special recital in Genoa using Paganini’s own Guarneri Del Gesu violin, among many others.

    In Mo began the 2017–18 season with a busy summer schedule featuring his concerto debut at the Ravinia Festival with the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, debut recitals at the Dresden Music Festival and the Yehudi Menuhin Gstaad Festval, as well as concerto engagements with the Philharmonia Zurich in Switzerland and Seoul Philharmonic in Korea, plus tour of South America as featured soloist with the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. The season continues with a return to Symphony Hall in Boston for a concerto appearance with the NEC Philharmonia and return engagements with Boston’s Bach, Beethoven and Brahms Society and Virginia’s Fairfax Symphony. In Europe, he makes his concerto debut with the Orchestre Nacional de France and his recital debut in Geneva, Switzerland.

    Overview

    Time magazine has called her “Africa’s premier diva.” Beninese singer, songwriter, activist, and Grammy-award winner Angélique Kidjo makes her Caramoor debut, bringing her “canyon-filling voice” (Billboard) and an energy that can’t help but inspire you to get up and dance! “The power of Kidjo’s unflappable voice, the range of her emotional expression, the stellar, genre-bending musicians who back her and the infectious, activist energy that courses through her songs all transcend any native tongue” (NPR Music).

    “Village traditions, cosmopolitan transformations, female solidarity, African pride and perpetual energy have been constants in Ms. Kidjo’s recording career.” — The New York Times

    Artist

    Three-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo is one of the greatest artists in international music today, a creative force with thirteen albums to her name. Time Magazine has called her “Africa’s premier diva.” The BBC has included her in its list of the continent’s 50 most iconic figures, and in 2011 The Guardian listed her as one of their Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World. Forbes Magazine has ranked Angelique as the first woman in their list of the Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa. She is the recent recipient of the prestigious 2015 Crystal Award given by the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

    As a performer, her striking voice, stage presence, and fluency in multiple cultures and languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.

    With thirteen albums to her name, Angélique Kidjo has been named as the first woman in Forbes‘ list of the Most Powerful Celebrities in Africa, one of The Guardian‘s Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World, and is the winner of three Grammy Awards.

    The new year brings us Angélique’s newest project, her interpretation of The Talking Heads’ classic 1980 album, Remain in Light. She will record her version of the album with superstar producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Jay Z, Drake, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, and Taylor Swift), taking classic songs such as Crosseyed and Painless, Once in a Lifetime, and Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On) and reinterpreting them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals. Angélique will bring this musical extravaganza to concert halls and festivals across the globe including a premier performance at Carnegie Hall and U.S. festival debut at Bonnaroo in 2017.

    Her star-studded album DJIN DJIN won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Album in 2008, and her album OYO was nominated for the same award in 2011. In January 2014 Angélique’s first book, a memoir titled Spirit Rising: My Life, My Music (Harper Collins) and her twelfth album, EVE (Savoy/429 Records), were released to critical acclaim. EVE later went on to win the Grammy Award for Best World Music Album in 2015, and her historic, orchestral album Sings with the Orchestre Philharmonique Du Luxembourg (Savoy/429 Records) won a Grammy for Best World Music Album in 2016.

    Angélique has gone on to perform this genre-bending work with several international orchestras and symphonies including the Bruckner Orchestra, The Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the Philharmonie de Paris. Her collaboration with Philip Glass, title IFÉ: Three Yorùbá Songs, made its US debut to a sold out concert with the San Francisco Symphony in June 2015. In addition to performing this new orchestral concert, Angélique continues to tour globally performing the high-energy concert she’s become famous for with her four-piece band. Her rousing live show was recently captured at the revered Austin City Limits and made its television debut in January 2016.

    Angelique also travels the world advocating on behalf of children in her capacity as a UNICEF and OXFAM goodwill Ambassador. She created her own charitable foundation, Batonga, dedicated to support the education of young girls in Africa.
