Composer Gene Pritsker presents a concert of his music for woodwinds; “I have worked with many great woodwind players and decided to produce a concert featuring some of theses amazing performers.” Five wind players and a poet will join Gene to perform solos, duos, chamber compositions, and music for winds and Samplestra (pre recorded electronics). The concert will feature: Michiyo Suzuki – bass clarinet, Keve Wilson – Oboe, Meighan Stoops – clarinet, Karen Bogardus – flute, Igor Begelman – clarinet, Paul Mills aka Poez – poet & narrator as well as Gene Pritsker on Guitar and as Di.J.  Premieres include a setting of the poem ‘How Far 2 Zuccotti Park’ by Paul Mills aka Poez, with the poet narrating, as well as ‘Affections’ for flute and oboe and a new Choro for oboe and Di.J.. Gene & Michiyo will perform ‘Ineffably Still’ for bass clarinet and electric guitar from Gene’s new chamber album ‘Melodies Alone Can Proudly Carry Their Own Death

Composer/guitarist/rapper/Di.J. Gene Pritsker has written over six hundred compositions, including chamber operas, orchestral and chamber works, electro-acoustic music and songs for hip-hop and rock ensembles. All of his compositions employ an eclectic spectrum of styles and are influenced by his studies of various musical cultures.

He is the founder and leader of Sound Liberation; an eclectic hip hop-chamber-jazz-rock-etc. ensemble who have released cd’s on Col-legno, Composers Concordance and  Innova Records. He is also the co-director of Composers’ Concordance, a new music presenting organization with a 30 year history of producing concert in NYC.  Other organization he is associate with include the Grammy nominated Absolute Ensemble, which he co founded in 1993 with Kristjan Jarvi and has been a composer in residence  and guitarist with ever since. Gene’s music has been performed all over the world at various festivals and by many ensembles and performers, including the The Adelaide Symphony, MDR Symphony, The Athens Camerata, China Philharmonic Orchestra, Brooklyn, Shanghai and Berlin Philharmonics, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, St. Lukes Chamber Orchestra, Sinfonietta Riga, Orchester des Pfalztheaters, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Anhaltische Philharmonie as well as such soloists as Anne Akiko Meyers, Lara St. John, Sarah Chang, Kathleen Supové, Martin Kuuskmann and Simone Dinnerstein. He worked closely with jazz fusion legend Joe Zawinul and has orchestrated major Hollywood movies, including ‘Cloud Atlas’, for which he wrote additional music and composed his ”Cloud Atlas Symphony’.

The New York Times described him as “…audacious…multitalented.” Joseph Pehrson, writing in The Music Connoisseur, described Pritsker as “dissolving the artificial boundaries between high brow, low brow, classical, popular musics and elevates the idea that if it’s done well it is great music, regardless of the style or genre”. Raul d’Gama Rose writes in All About Jazz: “Barring the obvious exceptions, much of 21st century composition appears to be thinning in significance, but this might be about to change. Gene Pritsker is one of a very spare handful of composers effecting this change.”   Evan Burke writes in ICareIf YouListen: “Pritsker seems to look at all music as one genre, in which all other possible styles, sounds and traditions are meant to be used as building blocks and palette colors, combined in various configurations to create a boundless whole. This result is almost always more interesting, and representative of how most new music will be born in the 21st century, as genres and barriers begin to vanish, and as styles begin cross-fertilizing in previously unimagined ways.” Classical Music Sentinel writes:  “His expressive reach is so wide as to encompass everything from ethno/techno, rock/jazz fusion, classical opera and more, and it all seems to be effortlessly integrated within his anima and comes out through different facets of his persona. You could almost see him as a modern day renaissance man. “

Organizations he is associated with include: Co-director of Composers Concordance & Composers Concordance Records, co-founder/guitarist of Absolute Ensemble and artist-in residence at the Austrian Outreach Festival. Gene Pritsker’s music is published by: Falls House Press, Gold Branch Music, Periferia Sheet Music & Calabrese Brothers music. Recorded on: Col Legno, Enja, Eutrepe, Wergo, Innova , Composers’ Concordance Records, SONY Classical, and Capstone record labels.

Review and interview on Jazzdagama.com

‘Gene Pritsker: Varieties Of Musical Experience’

“Gene Pritsker is a modernist at heart. If there is something new to be said to describe an old form or even a formless old thing – as old as yesterday, that is – this extraordinary musician will be among the first to say it…All of his music is of the highest quality, audacious and witty, joyous and elevated, and incomparable to anything written and recorded. In all of this Gene Pritsker has created a singular vocabulary, spoken not only by someone deeply schooled in music, but also in history, theology and philosophy.”

Drunk with inspiration, Andy returned to his composer’s garret and wrote his newest work, Lamplighter Reveal, representing the taste of Lamplighter Brewing… an Original Gravity first!

Don’t miss this world premier unique melding of sound and zymurgy, as Andy’s inspired string quartet is turned back into beer at the creative and adept hands of Lamplighter’s Master Brewer. Tyler has listened to recordings of Andy’s string works and is fashioning a one-night only adventurous brett-fermented buckwheat ale to pair with the music. This quixotic brew will only be available the night of the concert.

On January 26th, Composers Concordance will feature the string quartet ETHEL and the percussion ensemble TALUJON in a program entitled ‘RoundTable’ at (Le) Poisson Rouge. The concert will include a round-table panel of celebrated artists, musicians, and poets, who will be onstage providing commentary. The panel will include Beth Fertig (contributing editor, WNYC), Mark Stewart (guitarist), David Baker (poet), Charles Coleman (composer-vocalist), and Paul Mills aka Poez (poet). The audience will be invited to tweet their immediate reactions to the music, which includes several premieres. Tweets, favorable and critical, will be projected live onscreen during the performance.

The concert will feature new and recent compositions by Svjetlana Bukvich, Dan Cooper, Melissa Grey, Peter Jarvis, Robert Levin, Milica Paranosic, Gene Pritsker, and Randy Woolf.

Performers include – ETHEL: Ralph Farris – viola; Kip Jones – violin; Dorothy Lawson – cello; and Corin Lee – violin. TALUJON percussion quartet: Ian Antonio, David Cossin, Matthew Gold, Tom Kolor, Michael Lipsey, and Matt Ward. Robert Voisey – Twitter master.

Acclaimed as “downtown’s reigning string quartet” (The New Yorker), and “one of the most exciting quartets around” (The Strad), ETHEL invigorates the contemporary music scene with exuberance, intensity, imaginative programming, and exceptional artistry. Described by the New York Times as an ensemble possessing an “edgy, unflagging energy”, TALUJON has been mesmerizing audiences since 1990.

Staying in rotation for thirty two years in NYC is a rare feat. In the case of a new music presenting organization, it requires not only diligence and cognizance of achievements of the past, but also an ethic of keeping one’s ear to the ground for emerging stylistic and technological developments, as well as talented new composers on the scene. Composers Concordance strives to present contemporary music in innovative ways, with an emphasis on thematic programming. It has also created a record label, Composers Concordance Records, with distribution by Naxos. Directors Gene Pritsker and Dan Cooper co-curate the programs, and lead the CompCord Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, String Orchestra, and Big Band. Associate Directors are Milica Paranosic, Peter Jarvis, Svjetlana Bukvich, and Melissa Grey. Composers Concordance’s overriding vision is to promote contemporary music, composers, and new works as a rightful and respected part of society. Good music, performed and recorded well, pushing the boundaries of sound and composition.

“For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label.” -The Wall Street Journal. “Enterprising new music organization” -The New York Times. “The Composers Concordance folks are unpredictable and at times refreshingly irreverent in a reverent sort of way….ingenious fun” -Classical-Modern Music Review. “Edgy…boisterous…demanding our attention” -San Diego Story. “These men and women are creating exciting music with elements of jazz, world music and many experimental techniques blended with equal parts classical tradition and playing techniques.” -Asbury Park Press. “There is considerable evidence to show that Composers Concordance may be one of the most exciting labels in American contemporary music.

Pittance Chamber Music

Pittance Chamber Music

Pittance Chamber Music continues its 2016/17 Season presenting Concert 2 with members of the GRAMMY-winning Los Angeles Opera Orchestra and maestro James Conlon on February 3, 2017, 8pm in Zipper Hall, The Colburn School in downtown Los Angeles. Concert 2 features Conlon conducting Mozart’s sublime Serenade in B flat known as the “Gran Partita.” Also on the program is Mendelssohn’s ever-popular Octet for Strings in E flat, Op. 20.
Among the most extraordinary musicians in the world are those you seldom see – the musicians of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra. Founder and Artistic Director Lisa Sutton, who is also Assistant Concertmaster of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra, formed Pittance Chamber Music in 2013 to shine the spotlight on these remarkable yet invisible artists, bringing them from the pit to the stage to perform in small ensembles, hence the name Pittance.
Says Sutton, “We are thrilled and honored to have Maestro Conlon with us for this concert, which, by the way, is taking place between two performances of Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio at the Los Angeles Opera. For many years we have been performing Mozart operas together, and I have no doubt our “Gran Partita” will be full of the lyricism, drama and humor typical of past collaborations with James.  We are so looking forward to this!”
Program for Concert 2*

MOZART Serenade No. 10 in B flat (“Gran Partita”) conducted by James Conlon. The title “Gran Partita” was written on the score (however not in Mozart’s hand) in a misspelled attempt to further describe the piece as a large work in several movements. The Serenade in B flat is one of Mozart’s most well-known and beloved works and was featured in the movie Amadeus, described in a soliloquy by the actor F. Murray Abraham in his role as Mozart’s rival Salieri: “On the page it looked nothing. The beginning simple, almost comic. Just a pulse – bassoons and basset horns – like a rusty squeezebox.  Then suddenly – high above it – an oboe, a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight! …It seemed to me I was hearing the voice of God.”
The Serenade is scored for 13 woodwind instruments and double bass and contains 7 movements, taking about one hour to perform. Its unique instrumentation includes the use of 2 basset horns, a pair of clarinet-like instruments with “basset” keys to provide extra low notes.  Part of the reason for this large, somewhat extravagant ensemble was the particular interest of Emperor Joseph II of Austria in grander Serenade music. Also, the Emperor had superb musicians employed at his court, among them the renowned clarinetist Anton Stadler, who was a friend of Mozart’s and for whom Mozart wrote many works featuring the clarinet.
MENDELSSOHN Octet for Strings in E flat, Op. 20 is a jubilant work scored for double string quartet, written by Mendelssohn in 1825 when he was just 16 years old. It is a remarkable work not only for the ease of its melodies and the grace and balance of its form, but also because Mendelssohn created a masterpiece for an atypical ensemble comprised of double string quartet. It remains to be one of the most popular works in the chamber music repertoire and features a virtuoso first violin part which will be performed by Los Angeles Opera Concertmaster Roberto Cani.
James Conlon is an American conductor of opera, and symphonic and choral works. He is Music Director of Los Angeles Opera and Principal Conductor of the Italian RAI National Symphony Orchestra. He was the long serving director of the two week Cincinnati May Festival from 1979 through 2016. From 2005 to 2015, he was music director at the Ravinia Festival, the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Conlon is known for his efforts in reviving music by composers suppressed during the Nazi regime. Conlon holds three honorary doctorates and was named Commandeur de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture, and in 2002 he received the Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest distinction, from then President of the French Republic Jacques Chirac.
Pittance Chamber Music concerts are informal and user-friendly, and are hosted by actor Miguel Perez, who engages the audience with brief historical notes and anecdotes. The roster of artists is drawn from a large pool of talent including members of the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra as well as Los Angeles Opera resident vocalists, resulting in a unique variety of repertoire not often heard together in one program.


Tickets are $35; $20 for seniors; $10 for students, and are available online at PittanceChamberMusic.org, or at the venue on the night of the concert, if tickets remain.

imslp00899-terryriley-inc-draggedThe Santa Monica Public Library is proud to present a community performance of Terry Riley’s composition “In C,” on Wednesday December 21 at 7:30PM in the Main Library’s Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium at 601 Santa Monica Blvd. Santa Monica, CA, 90401.
Composed in 1964 and first recorded in 1968, “In C” is a pioneering work of minimalism which became popular with fans of psychedelic rock, and which influenced ambient and other electronic music. Traces of “In C” can be heard from Philip Glass to Aphex Twin, and in The Who’s song “Baba O’Riley,” named in tribute to Terry Riley.
Although performances are usually 45 minutes or longer, “In C” is a single page of sheet music (shown above): 53 melodic fragments of different lengths which the musicians each repeat as many times as they individually choose, creating ever-changing interlocking patterns.
Because the materials and rules of “In C” are relatively simple, and because it can be played by any combination of instruments and a group of any size, all interested musicians are invited to participate in this performance. Students and faculty from southland colleges and universities and members of several local orchestras and bands of various styles will be involved. Musicians should download the sheet music from http://imslp.org/wiki/In_C_(Riley,_Terry) and arrive by 6PM on Dec. 21 for a short rehearsal. Please bring pitched instruments only; acoustic ones are preferred.
This unique gathering will represent the depth and diversity of the Los Angeles music scene and will celebrate the first year of the Soundwaves new music series.
Learn more about Soundwaves at soundwavesnewmusic.com
A recording of “In C” can be streamed from DRAM: The Database of Recorded American Music. Log in with your Santa Monica library card at smpl.org/Online_Databases.aspx
This program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis.
For more information, call (310) 458-8600 or visit smpl.org. The Main Library is directly served by Big Blue Bus lines 1, 7, R7, R10, and 18. Lines 2, 3, R3, and 9, and the Metro Expo line also stop within a short walking distance. Ride your bike.
The auditorium is wheelchair-accessible. For other disabled services, call Administration at (310) 458-8606 one week ahead.
