This is the first ever performance of ALL of Julia Wolfe's string quartets at one time, on one stage.  Julia Wolfe's string quartets, as described by The New Yorker, "combine the violent forward drive of rock music with an aura of minimalist serenity [using] the four instruments as a big guitar, whipping psychedelic states of mind into frenzied and ecstatic climaxes." This performance is presented in conjunction with the exhibition of fellow New York City cultural icon Martha Rosler: Irrespective

Saturday, March 17, 2018, 7pm
National Sawdust, Brooklyn, NY
Tickets

BMP: Next Generation is a new initiative to discover the next generation of music-theatre and opera-theatre compositional voices. 72 emerging composers from coast-to-coast submitted vocal works, and ten extraordinary pieces were selected to be featured as a showcase at National Sawdust in Brooklyn. The complete three-year program will include the commission, development, and world premiere production of a new opera by one of the selected composers. The March 17, 2018 concert at National Sawdust will be led by music directors Lidiya Yankovskaya and David Bloom, with stage direction by Luke Leonard. New-music ensemble Contemporaneous will provide its orchestral forces.

The chosen composers are:

Jessie DownsNoah KaplanMolly JoyceMichael Lanci,

Matt McBaneEmma O’HalloranGemma Peacocke,

Matthew RecioDaniel Sabzghabaei, and Leaha Maria Villarreal.

These composers hail from across the US, and represent a wide variety of compositional styles. The concert will feature the submitted vocal works of each composer. The concert will be adjudicated by an assembled panel of classical music luminaries. Panelists include Christopher Koelsch (LA Opera), Missy Mazzoli (composer), Beth Morrison (BMP), Julian Wachner (Trinity Church Wall Street), Ed Yim (American Composers Orchestra).  From the ten composers, the panelists will select two composers who will be commissioned to write a 30-minute work (song cycle, one-act opera, or other vocal work). These 30-minute works will premiere in BMP’s 2018-2019 season in a semi-staged concert. Finally, Beth Morrison Projects will choose one of these two composers to receive a commission for a full evening-length operatic work to be developed, produced, premiered, and toured by BMP.

Stranger Love

Stranger Love

A new opera by Dylan Mattingly, performed by Contemporaneous
Co-presented by PROTOTYPE and Roulette

January 16 & 17 at 7pm

Roulette
509 Atlantic Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11217

Stranger Love follows two lovers whose romance unfolds to the rhythm of the seasons: in springtime, they meet; in summer, their love flourishes; autumn and winter, they face threats from without and within; a second spring brings resignation and the chance for renewal. Over time the frame broadens beyond the individuals to offer an archetypal picture of human love, and ultimately, an astral envisioning of the divine, a love supreme. Created by composer Dylan Mattingly and librettist Thomas Bartscherer, Stranger Love is inspired by the writings of Plato and Octavio Paz and is scored for a 28-piece orchestra (including three microtonal pianos). With a run time of over five hours, the full production of Stranger Love unfolds across an expansive time-scale and is a grand celebration of life itself, evoking the visceral thrill of a gospel revival, the ethereal calm of watching snow fall, the wonder of staring into the night sky. PROTOTYPE will present a work-in-progress concert of Act I. 

Composer: Dylan Mattingly
Librettist: Thomas Bartscherer
Conductor David Bloom

With Contemporaneous
