The U. S. Premiere of this 25-minute work, on a concert with trios by Smetana and Shostakovich.
As part of the Talea Ensemble’s annual “Written for Talea” program, the group, with soprano Jennifer Zetlan, will premiere Karchin’s extended vocal-instrumental cycle based on poetry of H. D. (a. k. a. Hilda Doolitle). The work was commissioned by the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard University, and the concert, postponed for several years due of the pandemic, will include additional premieres by Tyshawn Sorey and Anthony Cheung.
Arches, for trumpet and percussion, will be performed as part of a return of the Washington Square Contemporary Music Society to the Tenri Institute in Manhattan after a hiatus of three years. Also on the program will be new works by Elizabeth Hoffman, Jaime Oliver, Gordon Beeferman and others.
