National Sawdust launches their fourth season with a night devoted to new music from celebrated minimalist composer and Founding Artistic Advisory Board member Terry Riley, who has been lauded as a “pioneering American composer” and the “guru of American music” (New York Times). Riley’s groundbreaking compositions in the early 1960s helped create the Minimalist movement in American music, and his subsequent works forever altered the landscape of electronic music, directly inspiring musicians in The Velvet Underground and The Who.
Riley will share the stage with Artist-in-Residence and up-and-coming conductor and composer Julian Wachner. Wachner has been hailed by the New York Times as “viscerally dramatic”, and this collaboration will afford him the opportunity to hone his skills with one of the movers and shakers of classical music. Along with the NOVUS NY ensemble of Trinity Wall Street, they will perform Riley’s Madrigal (2015), Archangels (2003), and Remember This, O Mind (1997), as well as Gity Razaz’s The Strange Highway, a cello octet commissioned by Richard Aaron for the third Amsterdam Cello Biennale.
Come and Bach up the family tree with us with music by C.P.E., J.C., and J.S. Bach. The Grammy nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street will join the orchestra in papa Bach’s secular cantata “Schleicht, spielende Wellen”, BWV 206.
C.P.E - Orchester-sinfonien No. 1, Wq. 183/1
J.C. - Sinfonia concertante for 2 violins and cello in E flat major
