The New Art Song Concert
The New Art Song Concert at Greenwich House on Saturday, February 28, 2009 will offer a bold and disparate group of contemporary composers and performers, all connected by the use of poetry and text in their work. Organized by saxophonist and composer Sam Sadigursky, whose two Words Project releases on New Amsterdam Records have received wide critical acclaim, the concert will feature performances pianist/singer Gabriel Kahane (performing his acclaimed Craigslistlieder), the Frank Carlberg Quintet, the Gregg Kallor Duo (performing a collection of Kallor's settings of Yeats and Dickinson for voice and piano), Sadigursky's The Words Project, and a solo performance of original settings by cellist, singer, and composer Jody Redhage. By working with poems and text, each composer boldly carries on a long lineage of art song, drawing on a wide range of material for their work in order to present a new vision of art song for the 21st century. From classics of the 19th century to modernist and beat poetry, anonymous dating postings on Craigslist to the strangely poetic strains of George W. Bush, each composer combines a myriad of influences, unafraid to cross stylistic boundaries and blur the line between composition and improvisation.
