Left Coast Chamber Ensemble - Long Distance Call
Venue: Berkeley Piano Club - Berkeley, California / YouTube Premiere
Admission: from $15 (in person), from $5 (virtual)
"Responding to the safety measures required in the pandemic, Left Coast has commissioned new works conceived as long distance conversations between a piano trio and a soprano. Laura Rose Schwartz and Ryan Suleiman [The Robin, based on a poem by Lebanese-American poet Gibran Khalil Gibran] have each written a new work using a call and response model: the singer and ensemble alternate in sending each other musical postcards! It is intended that the music can be performed successfully virtually or in person. Music by George Lewis and Louise Farrenc completes the program."
