The Danbury Music Centre's Charles Ives Concert Series, in collaboration with the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra, is excited to present a chamber concert entitled Transfiguration. The concert is part of the Ives Series, directed by Paul Frucht and Jon Cziner, and will feature talented musicians and composers, as well as RSO Music Director Yuga Cohler.
Unsuk Chin transforms the idea of an etude, Carlos Simon translates a quote from Oprah, 2019 composer-in-residence Robert Paterson uses real-world sounds through electronics, Gabriella Smith reconstructs Bach, David T. Little renews the energy of Ives, Takashi Yoshimatsu invokes birds, and Ives Series artistic director Paul Frucht deals with memory and self-reference. Each work on the concert program features works that transform sound or music in unique, fascinating and beautiful ways.
“We are thrilled to present such a special concert of incredible chamber music” says Laurie Kenagy, RSO Executive Director. “The musicians are remarkable and the program, under the leadership of Paul and Jon, and direction of Yuga, is creative and engaging. Please plan to join us on the 10th for a terrific evening!”
