Queens New Music Festival: Thomas Piercy--Tokyo to New York
Clarinetist and composer Thomas Piercy presents Tokyo to New York, a concert of new music by contemporary Japanese composers based on their thoughts about New York City, and works by non-Japanese composers inspired by Japan. The concert will be enhanced by projections of photography of New York City by photographer Christina Boers as well as photos of Tokyo by Thomas Piercy.
The musical program includes 25 works composed or arranged for and premiered by Piercy, including several works combining Western classical instruments with traditional Japanese instruments. The performance, which features composer/pianist Mika Tanaka and world-renowned Shakuhachi player Elizabeth Brown, includes two world premieres by composers Mika Tanaka and Masatora Goya, and seven US premieres by Yohei Kurihara, Ippei Inoue, Yuichi Matsumoto, Kento Iwasaki, Katsuhiro Oguri, Tomoko Uzawa, and Hifumi Shimoyama. American composers also featured on this program include: Thomas Piercy, Armando Ayala, Greg Bartholomew, John Bilotta, Andy Cohen, Douglas DaSilva, Andrew Davis, Jim Fox, Michael Frazier, Nana Siniakova, Daniel J. Thompson, and David Wolfson.
