My Rilke songs (Drei Jahreszeiten) will be performed by Ensemble 365 at New York City’s Firehouse Space.
From the Firehouse website:
Dr. Faustus presents: Ensemble 365 & Pierrot Lunaire
New York’s contemporary music scene is singularly vast in scope, perhaps impossible to cover with a single series. With this residency at The Firehouse Space, Dan Blake brings together a range of collaborations that at least begins to represent the diversity of experiences and musical styles he has witnessed while living in New York.
The fifth and final concert of this season will feature Ensemble 365 in collaboration with the commissioning series Dr. Faustus. Ensemble 365 will perform new works by Inès Thiebaut, Greg Brown, Eric Nathan, André Brégégère, and Elizabeth Adams. Also on the program will be a performance of Schoenberg’s masterpiece Pierrot Lunaire, song by Sara Paar and her ensemble.
We will also be joined for an opening set by pianist and composer Sandra Sprecher, who will perform new works.
