psssst ... Want Some New Contemporary Music With Your Turandot And Rachmaninoff?
Remember, composer Philippe Manoury (France) and violist Christophe Desjardins (France) will be at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. tomorrow night attempting to further modernize the new music scene in the Nation's Capital:
- Gerard Grisey: Prologue (1976) 15’ for solo viola and electronic
- Sébastien Béranger: Le triangle de Pascal (2003) 10’ for solo viola
- Philippe Manoury: Partita I (2007) 45’ for solo viola and live
Also, remember that following up on the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts's Contemporary Classical Music Week, earlier in May, Morelia (in the State of Michoacan, Mexico) will be hosting its Fifth Annual Morelia Contemporary Music Festival from June 1-6. Morelia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
