A Harp, a Viola, and a Flute
Bridget Kibbey, Jack Stulz, Julietta Curenton

With its unique instrumental combination and seductive sound, Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Harp, and Viola has led to many subsequent works written for this unusual combination. One such work, Sebastian Currier's 15 Minutes, consisting of fifteen one minute movements, will be performed along with the Debussy by the much-acclaimed performers Bridget Kibbey, Julietta Curenton, and Jack Stulz.

Artists Present: Michele Beck

Michele Beck
New School University
April 8, 2015
Michele Beck has received acclaim for her work in video and performance. In her videos she often films herself wearing costumes of her own making, concealing her entire body, head and face. In My Erotic Body, a work that could broadly be characterized as documentary, she turns her attention to the recent trends in pole dancing. An act that we associate with strip clubs and various forms of misogyny, pole dancing has been reinvented as a women-only activity, which brings together movement and eroticism in an environment totally isolated from men.

In 1982, Ligeti wrote his Horn Trio, calling it a homage to Brahms. It was an important turning point in Ligeti’s musical style, when his modern­ist aesthetic shifted and he began to look back to the past. The superb Nunc Ensemble performed both the Ligeti and the Brahms horn trios side by side, as well as works by Rakowski and Ferneyhough. In this video Sebastian Currier, Artist-in-Residence, Miranda Cuckson, Michael Atkinson, Blair McMillen, and David Rakowski take the stage to discuss the concert.
