Circles and Lines Live at (le) Poisson Rouge No. 3!

This time around we were joined by our friends over at The Manhattan Camerata which was founded by composers Lucía Caruso and Pedro da Silva.  It was also featured on Q2’s live concert series, where they said:

Contemporary music ensembles are more often than not spearheaded by dedicated performers who band together out of a shared chemistry and passion for performing new works. In the case of Circles & Lineshowever, it is a consortium motivated by composers who are committed to presenting a range of accessible, yet eclectic and unique compositional styles.

This performance on September 12, 2010 at (Le) Poisson Rouge features the works of Circles & Lines composers Angélica Negrón, Noam Faingold, Eric Lemmon, Dylan Glatthorn and Conrad Winslow in addition to that of Pedro da Silva and Lucia Caruso.

Though the illustrious composers of Circles & Lines possess a range of experiences — from composing music for toys and unconventional instruments to founding the music criticism and review siteOpenSourceMusic to being composer-in-residence at Tulsa’s Midtown School — they have all managed to find common ground right here in New York City. Featuring pieces which involve everything from electronics to prepared piano to banjo to chamber orchestra, this (L)PR concert exemplifies Circles & Lines’s colorful backgrounds and mission to program a performance that runs the gamut of today’s emerging composers.

You can find the program from the concert here.

Le Poisson Rouge is located on 158 Bleecker st.

Subway: A, B, C, D, E, F and V trains to W. 4th St. station, R, W to 8th St. station, #6 to Astor Place station, #1 to Christopher St./Sheridan Sq. station.
