Description:

Jazzmeia Horn: Emerging Artist Series

Saturday, March 10, 2018
8 pm

Jazzmeia Horn won the 2015 Thelonious Monk Vocal Contest and the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition. She is a natural who grew up in a family passionately rooted in gospel music; her grandmother, a jazz-loving pianist, gave Horn her name.

Time proved her Grandma right-

Since moving from her native Dallas to attend the New School, Horn has fully embraced and become a symbol of the New York jazz scene. Just the last 3 months of 2017 took her from Brooklyn to Bogota, South Korea, China, London, San Diego and the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy.

Her evolution from New York musician to festival-hopping jazz star happened quickly and is reflected by the success of her debut album, A Social Call, which quickly surged to Billboard's Top 10 Jazz Albums upon its release.

"Great story-telling and inspired message-giving, fluid vocals and scat-singing and spirited group performances" - Ashley Kahn, jazz author

Winner of the 2013 Sarah Vaughan and 2015 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competitions

Sophie & Fiachra

Sophie & Fiachra
Description:

Described as “Invigorating” by The Irish Times, Sophie & Fiachra take the Traditional Music of Quebec and Ireland and mate it in a unique way, remaining true to their roots while creating a new and original sound.

Their sound is rooted in the fiddle playing and singing of Quebecoise Sophie Lavoie, the uilleann piping and banjo playing of Fiachra O’Regan from Ireland. Their sound is sweetened all the more by Gaelic and French Canadian song arrangements.

“This is Irish Music with a Quebecois Twist at it’s very, very best” said Mike Harding. This is no surprise given Sophie & Fiachra’s track record with delighted audiences throughout the world – and their deep love for, and intimacy with their respective musical traditions.

Sophie Lavoie, from Lac-St-Jean in Québec. She first was introduced to the world of music when learning the classical piano at a young age. Then she became interested in the traditional music of Québec. She started to learn the fiddle by listening to legendary fiddlers from her region such as Louis Pitou Boudreault. In 2004, she completed studies in classical music with a bachelor degree in Piano in the University of Montreal. She created with two other musicians the successful band “L’attisée” who play traditional music from Quebec. From 2005 to 2008, Sophie performed with L’Attisée all over Québec and in Ireland, and record the eponymous album L’Attisée , which was nominated as Album Traditional of The Year at ADISQ 2011. In 2008, she met the Irish piper Fiachra O’Regan and started with him this new duo Sophie & Fiachra. Together, they produced the albums Sophie & Fiachra in 2010, Rewind in 2014, and Un Canadien errant in 2016. Sophie is currently researching on the fiddle style of her native region Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean for a project funded by CALQ, and composing traditional music and songs as part of a project funded by the Canadian Art Council.

Fiachra O‘Regan, from Connemara, on the West Coast of Ireland, plays Irish music on the Uilleann Pipes and Whistle, He is a senior All Ireland Champoin on both these intruments. Fiachra has performed in Canada, Australia and Europe, and has on played stage along with artists such as The Chieftains, Paddy Keenan (bothy band) and Seán Cannon (Dubliners). He is also saught after as a teacher in private lessons and at festivals. He has appeared on many albums as a guest and In 2008 he recorded Aisling Gheal, his first solo album (buy). More info can be found on his website: www.fiachrapipes.com.

Masters of the Celtic Harp

Masters of the Celtic Harp
Description:

William Jackson has been a major figure in traditional Scottish music since he was a founding member of the influential folk group, Ossian, in 1976. Touring extensively for the past 15 years, Gráinne Hambly breaks the genteel parlor image of her instrument, elevating the Celtic harp right up there with the fiddles and pipes in the realm of dynamic Irish dance music. Rarely have Irish and Scottish music been arranged together with such finesse and creative success as by these two artists. Besides the contrasting and complimentary sounds and styles of the harps, their performances also include concertina, whistle, and bouzouki.

LCCMF Presents Robyn Bollinger: The Bass of Time

LCCMF Presents Robyn Bollinger: The Bass of Time
Description:

LCCMF is delighted to present Robyn Bollinger, a stellar member of our 2015 and 2016 Resident Trio.

Incorporating multi-media historical presentations and live personal narratives with musical performance, CIACCONA tells the story of one of music’s most ancient compositional ideas – the development of a simple repeating bass line – through the lens of solo violin repertoire. The program delves into questions of the meaning of art, the purpose of expression, and the motivations of four remarkable composers spanning from the Baroque to the present day: Biber, Bach, Bartók, and Berio, while simultaneously exploring the personal beliefs and questions of program creator and performer Robyn Bollinger.

Produced with generous support from the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund, CIACCONA affirms that even in the twenty-first century, with minimal technological gimmicks and maximum personal impact, classical music can again be meaningful to every audience.

As performed in sold-out concerts at Tanglewood and the BBC Proms (2015) – and just a couple of days before their Carnegie Hall Concert. “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse” presents Apollo’s Fire and director/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell in music of J.S. Bach and his most admired colleagues. Inspired by the lively coffeehouse concerts led by Bach in 18th-century Leipzig – fiery strings, colorful recorders and a dizzying harpsichord solo… an evening of rampant virtuosity!

This performance includes the planned Carnegie Hall Program: Brandenburgs no. 4 & 5, Telemann’s Don Quixote Suite, Handel’s Terpsichore Chaconne, and Sorrell’s acclaimed arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”) which the group performs from memory

.
“Apollo’s Fire has forged a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music… European ears have begun to appreciate the blend of intellect and artistry concocted by harpsichordist Sorrell and her colleagues. Their seductive vision of musical authenticity is guided by a shared commitment to honest emotional expression, rooted in period style yet never its slave.” -- BBC Music Magazine

“Visually charged, minutely stage-managed musical theatrics from Jeannette Sorrell and her irrepressible team of musicians… Utterly sensational, every phrase a Baroque curlicue dipped in gold and then embellished still further. Charismatic and boundlessly energetic… this is Baroque music in its unbuttoned state.” -- TheArtsDesk, London

“Under the inspired direction of Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo’s Fire has become one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles, causing one to hear familiar baroque material anew.” -- The Independent, London

“Apollo’s Fire is one of the brightest lights of period-instrument playing in the United States… arguably the most distinctive in sound and memorable in style. Its trademark qualities: expressive subtlety, exuberance and passion.” --Classical Music Magazine, London

“This swaggering version… makes the most of the variety of instrumental color Bach so exhilaratingly put on show. Two harpsichord concertos BWV 1052 and 1056 are both brilliantly played, as is the keyboard part in the Fifth Brandenburg, by Sorrell.” -- The Sunday Times, London (reviews of Bach Concertos CD)

“These excellent young musicians take a highly gestural approach to phrasing and bring across their music with an exuberant musicality, like wind through a forest. Easily one of the most enjoyable concerts of the season.” -- The Boston Globe
