Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm


SCHULHOFF – Concertino
HARTKE – King of the Sun
WOLFE – On Seven-Star-Shoes
PIAZZOLLA – Serie del Angel

Ástor Piazzolla revolutionized the world of tango music, with a unique voice echoing from Argentina to Europe via New York. Tonight, a pair of tango dancers accompany his Angel series. Erwin Schulhoff’s career started off with a blessing from Dvořák and ended all too soon in a Nazi concentration camp. His Concertino, written on a flurry of only four days, is a unique blend of expressionism and folk idioms. A late medieval canon is the backbone of American Grammy-winner Stephen Hartke’s King of the Sun. Also on the program, Julia Wolfe’s On Seven-Star-Shoes.
