    At the nexus of the active, New York-centric indie-classical scene, Merkin Concert Hall’s Ecstatic Music Festival made a name for itself in its inaugural year as a ground-breaking series emphasizing vibrant, adventurous ensembles and unlikely collaborations between composers from the pop and classical realms. In this its second year, the festival returns with an exciting new line-up of artists from diverse musical backgrounds and its signature emphasis on curiosity, risk and discovery.

    From Cued Up at Q2: “Look & Listen Festival: Part III” 

    Toy Pianos, accordion, electronics and bandsembles take over the L&L Festival.
    Sunday, August 21, 2011

    “Cease the last full month of Summer with the Look & Listen Festival running through August here on Cued Up. For the fest’s third concert of four, enjoy two world premieres by the delightfully unclassifiable drummer/composer John Hollenbeck and his group The Claudia Quintet with Theo Bleckmann, a world premiere by past Q2 composer-portrait Angélica Negrón and works by toy piano wiz Phyllis Chen and textural magician Zibuokle Martinaityte.

    You can enjoy the first two concerts here (Part I) and here (Part II) for more exciting new works from this year’s L&L Festival, but tune in this Sunday to marvel at Part III’s fireworks: The Claudia Quintet reconciles sputters of pointillist post-jazz with heartfelt lyricism via Bleckmann’s crooning and Hollenbeck’s writing; Chen plays a mélange of housewares, mixing bowls, and toy piano to produce a one-woman orchestra that winks at Gamelan music; Ms. Martinaityte teases at Eastern-Euro modality, while conjuring up some breathtaking swells that sound more like a synthesizer than the sax/bass trombone/accordion trio.

    Cued Up On Q2 streams Sundays at 2PM on Q2; encores Tuesdays at 8PM and Thursdays at 4PM on Q2

    This edition of Cued Up is hosted by Terrance McKnight.

Over the years, tens of thousands of dollars have been distributed in cash prizes to winning authors, journalists and broadcast producers and personalities.

The 42nd Annual ASCAP Deems Taylor Awards are made possible by a generous grant from the Music Publishers Association (MPA).
