Description

Presented by Richard Cameron-Wolfe

Planet-roaming composers Agustin Castilla-Avila (Spain), Wladimir Rosinskij (Austria), and Richard Cameron-Wolfe (New Mexico, USA) converge in the National Opera Center's Scorca Hall on Saturday August 6 at 7:00PM to present a concert featuring five US premieres and two world premieres. The event opens with "In Memoriam Dmitri Hvorostovsky", Rosinskij's tribute to his good friend, the great Siberian baritone, includes the world premiere of Castilla-Avila's "Suite of Movements" (for solo cello) and concludes with the world premiere of Cameron-Wolfe's micro-opera "Passionate Geometries", featuring soprano Elisabeth Halliday-Quan. Gayle Blankenburg (pianist, California), Agustin Castilla-Avila (guitar) and Ruslana Prokopenko (cellist, Ukraine) are joined by seven of New York's stellar new-music provocateurs: guitarists Dan Lippel, Oren Fader, William Anderson, and Matt Slotkin; flutist Roberta Michel, clarinetist Madison Greenstone, and cellist Caleb van der Swaagh. Together they will offer a "gourmet feast" of contemporary music.
