The concert features works by 20th Century Italian composer and poet Giacinto Scelsi, noted German Dada artist and sound poet Kurt Schwitters, Hungarian classical composer György Kurtág as well as the San Diego premiere of Los Angeles-based composer Carolyn Chen‘s “Some Dragons.”
Violinist Batya MacAdam-Somer and soprano Bonnie Lander will explore the concepts of story and self through Scelsi’s surrealistic music, Schwitters’ Dada-inspired sound poetry, Kurtág‘s portrait of author Franz Kafka through a kaleidoscopic set of miniatures, and Chen’s quirky, intimate settings of different texts for singing and speaking violinist.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14. Tickets are available online at $20 for members, $25 for nonmembers and $10 for students.
San Diego New Music is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public performance of notable works from the 20th and 21st centuries.
