Supply: Philadelphia’s BOWERBIRD.
WED SEPT 21
MORTON FELDMAN’S “FOR BUNITA MARCUS”
ADAM TENDLER, piano
IN Individual at University Lutheran
Bowerbird is delighted to current New York Town dependent pianist Adam Tendler doing American composer Morton Feldman’s (1926 – 1987) late period of time masterpiece For Bunita Marcus . Tunes critic James Pritchett describes the work: “For Bunita Marcus , like all the late Feldman performs, is an journey that can take a reasonably extensive time to perform out, but which is remarkably lacking in heaviness. We could anticipate an epic, but we get anything considerably subtler. Indeed, what we get is the present moment, in all its elegance, in excess of and about again. If we surrender to the musical picture that is correct in front of us, a piece like For Bunita Marcus is an effortless planet to enter into and to explore with Feldman. We step into the silence soon after that first six-observe motto, and we surprise: What comes up coming? The subsequent hour and a quarter is expended doing nothing at all more than exploring what comes next—and the following factor after that, and the up coming immediately after that.”

CATHERINE LAMB’S “CURVO TOTALITAS”
IN Man or woman concert at College Lutheran
Bowerbird is happy to current Yarn/Wire executing the Philadelphia premiere of Catherine Lamb’s “Curvo Totalitas”. On the rating, Lamb describes the piece: “Synthesizer musicians enjoy their product (which are filtered partials of the percussion recordings) in an unforced manner. Melodic contours unfold slowly, relative to the total time. Tones in contours may occassionally be articulated far more than the moment to explore a effectively located stage relation in a supplied moment. Tonal enhancement is made up of blurring with each other to kind harmonic densities from melodic contours, a lot more isolated highlighting aggregates, as nicely as lingering sustain points being gathered and introduced. Responsiveness and resonance is dependent on the width of the filter around unique partials in time. Shiftings are extremely gradual.”
