TownMusic Season Subscription
Tuesday, September 28 at 7:30 pm
Derek Bermel with Christopher Taylor & Joshua Roman
This season, Town Hall's TownMusic series will explore the work of composer/performers, and it kicks off in grand style with boundary-defying clarinetist/composer Derek Bermel. His 2010 CD Voices, featuring expansive works that meld orchestral and jazz music with unlikely global traditions and influences, was nominated for a 2010 Grammy Award, and he is a recipient of a Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellowship and the prestigious Rome Prize. Regularly performing on the classical circuit, he also plays with rock and funk groups (including his own, TONK). For TownMusic, he will be joined by series Artistic Director Joshua Roman and pianist Christopher Taylor (called "brilliant" and "energetic" in The New York Times) in a highly personal program that includes Brahms' Trio for Clarinet, Violoncello & Piano; Milhaud's Sonatine; the world premiere of a new work by Suzanne Farrin; and the world premiere of new version (for cello and piano) of Bermel's own Sonata Humana, among others.

So Percussion
Since forming at the Yale School of Music in 1999, So Percussion (Eric Beach, Josh Quillen, Adam Sliwinski, and Jason Treuting) has been creating music that is raucous and subtle, barbarous and refined. Called an "experimental powerhouse" by the Village Voice, "astonishing and entrancing" by Billboard Magazine, and "brilliant" by The New York Times, the Brooklyn-based quartet's innovative work with today's most exciting composers, plus its own original music, has won the foursome international acclaim. Tonight's program will feature the influence and compositions of Steve Reich (Music for Pieces of Wood) and John Cage (Child of Tree and 3rd Construction), as well as Selections from So's Imaginary City and Treuting's Amid the Noise.

Tuesday, May 3 at 7:30 pm
JACK Quartet with Joshua Roman
If you don't know JACK, it might be time for an introduction. Critics are gushing ("viscerally exciting," "explosive virtuosity," "mind-blowingly good"), the group's recording of Xenakis' complete string quartets appeared on at least a dozen major-media "Best Of 2009" lists, and they'll follow up their Town Hall appearance with a date at London's famed Wigmore Hall. Violinists Christopher Otto and Ari Streisfeld, violist John Pickford Richards, and cellist Kevin McFarland, are dedicated to the commissioning and performance of new works, and their TownMusic concert will include a new arrangement of 5-voice Madrigals for Cello Quintet by Carlo Gesualdo; String Quartet no. 2 by Gyorgy Ligeti; Algol by Christopher Otto; Kevin McFarland's Eternal Golden Braid; and Tetras by Iannis Xenakis, JACK will be joined by Joshua Roman, TownMusic Artistic Director and former principal cellist with the Seattle Symphony.

Wednesday, June 8 at 7:30 pm
Gabriela Lena Frank & Joshua Roman
Our season concludes with the ardent, brash, and very personal work of pianist Gabriela Lena Frank. A member of Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, a recipient of both a Guggenheim fellowship and a Latin Grammy, Frank's compositional mentors include legends like William Bolcom, Leslie Bassett and Samuel Jones. But her voice is defined by her own multicultural heritage: Born to a mother of mixed Peruvian/Chinese ancestry and a father of Lithuanian/Jewish descent, Frank is a self-styled musical anthropologist whose work reflects her travel in South America and her immersion in Latin-American folklore, incorporating mythology and native musical styles into a western classical frame that is uniquely her own. This Town Hall concert for string quartet and piano will feature works by Bartok, Bolcom, and Chou Wen Chung, as well as a newly commissioned piece by Frank for Joshua Roman.
