Kaufman Music Center’s “alt-classical” youth ensemble Face the Music will perform at Lefrak Hall on Sunday, April 28th at 7pm .
The only student ensemble in New York City dedicated to performing music by living classical composers, Face the Music has been praised by the New York Times for its “stunning performances” of music by contemporary composers and hailed by critics as “polished, exuberant” (New York Times) and one of “New York’s favorite contemporary-classical ensembles” (Time Out New York). Since its founding in 2005, the ensemble has taken its place as a full-fledged player in New York City’s vibrant contemporary classical scene, rapidly becoming what Allan Kozinn of the New York Times has called “a force in the New York new-music world.”

On Monday, April 22, 2013 at 7:30 PM, the critically acclaimed Momenta Quartet (Emilie-Anne Gendron and Adda Kridler, violins; Stephanie Griffin, viola; Michael Haas, cello) will join pianist Molly Morkoski in a concert celebrating a diverse array of works by Jewish composers at the Center for Jewish History (15 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011; www.cjh.org).
Tickets: $15 general, $10 for seniors, students, and CJH/AJHS/YUM members with ID. Available at the door or online through http://www.cjh.org/event/2216.
The program, which features Momenta members in a range of collaborative capacities, underlines the quartet’s core tradition of championing living composers. “Sirius” (2012), a new piano quartet by Yeshiva faculty member David Glaser, will receive its New York premiere. Momenta members will be joined by pianist Molly Morkoski, whose playing has been critically hailed as “outstanding” by The Boston Globe and “exhilarating” by the American Record Guide. Momenta violist Stephanie Griffin will take the stage in “Malekhamoves” (2009), a solo work by the Cleveland-based composer Timothy Beyer.
The program also highlights an eclectic assortment of underrepresented 20th-century works. Momenta will draw from its unique personal repertoire for the evening’s featured string quartet selection, Stefan Wolpe’s aphoristic “Twelve Pieces for String Quartet” (1950). Seldom performed today, this ephemeral collection of character pieces totals less than 7 minutes. In contrast, Morkoski and Momenta violinist Emilie-Anne Gendron will present Aaron Copland’s lush and expansive Violin Sonata (1944), composed as a wartime memorial piece. Rounding out the program is Darius Milhaud’s jazz-infused piano-quintet suite “La création du monde,” op.81b (1922-23), a musical souvenir of the French composer’s trip to New York at the height of the Jazz Age.
This concert marks Momenta’s 5th concert appearance at the Center for Jewish History and its 4th year as the Bernice Diener Ensemble-in-Residence at Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women.
