Tribeca New Music presents Seven World Premieres at The Cell
Tribeca New Music continues its 2017 Festival season with On Behalf. The phrase “On Behalf,” drawn from an exchange between Killer Mike and Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, was used to inspire seven new works by composers Will Ayers, Andy Costello, Alexandra du Bois, Molly Joyce, Nate May, D. J. Sparr, and Dorian Wallace.
The concert takes place at Nancy Manocherian’s – the cell, 338 West 23rd Street (bet. 8th & 9th Ave.) in NYC, on Sunday, February 19 at 4 pm.
Tickets range in price from $15 to $25. For details and to buy tickets, please go to Tribeca New Music – On Behalf.
The dynamic and inventive pianist Brianna Matzke has teamed up with New York City-based violinist Hajnal Pivnick and special guest pianist Kathleen Supovéto commission seven important emerging composers to create innovative new works for piano and violin, as part of the Response Project initiative. The phrase “ON BEHALF” was drawn from an exchange between Killer Mike and Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. The composers have been invited to consider how this phrase impacts them personally, politically, and/or artistically, as well as potential manifestations of the phrase within musical composition and performance. Each has chosen to create “on behalf” of an idea, person, community, or condition.
