MAYA, the trio of John Hadfield, percussion; Bridget Kibbey, harp; Sato Moughalian flute; with guest artist Cristina Pato, gaita (Galician bagpipe) will be presented by Perspectives Ensemble at the Judson Memorial Church, located at 55 Washington Square South, New York, in a program of traditional Sephardic, Galician and Andalusian music, and new works, featuring three world-premiere performances, on Wednesday, April 28, at 8 PM. Admission is free.
MAYA performs a program that features Spanish music both traditional and new. Modern Spain comprises 17 autonomous regions or communities, which are discrete entities, characterized by distinctive cultural traditions. In Galicia, in the north, there are traditions that are shared with the Celts, among them the Galician bagpipe, or gaita, ubiquitous in the area as a folk instrument. Cristina Pato is internationally acclaimed as a gaita master and is bringing the traditional music of Galicia all over the world with her passionate and virtuosic playing. Andalusia is represented both in a bulería, a traditional flamenco form, performed by John Hadfield as conceived for solo cajon, and in two new works by Eneko Vadillo, a composer from Málaga who is building bridges between avant-garde music and its historical roots. Vadillo’s new works were commissioned for MAYA by the Spanish Ministry of Culture. Catalonia offers the beloved Song of the Birds (El Cant dels Ocells), and a new work by Joan Valent, a Mallorcan composer (from the Balearic Islands, where the Catalan language is spoken). This work was commissioned by Foundation for Iberian Music, The Graduate Center, City University of New York. Both composers will be in attendance. The trio also performs Puncha, puncha la rosa huela, the popular 14th century Sephardic song, and ASKLEPIOS by the Basque composer Gabriel Erkoreka, winner of the Premio Reina Sofia 2007, Spain’s highest honor for composers. ASKLEPIOS was also commissioned for MAYA by the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
The concert is a presentation of Perspectives Ensemble, and is generously supported by the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation in memory of Danièle Doctorow, with additional support from the Foundation for Iberian Music, The Graduate Center, City University of New York, Antoni Piza, Director, and the Institut Ramon Llull. Generous support for the commissions came from the Spanish Ministry of Culture and the Foundation for Iberian Music.
