    MAGICAL MANDOLIN Sunday, July 22nd, 2018, at 5 p.m.         JOYCE RASMUSSEN BALINT / mandolinYELENA GRINBERG / piano  Dear Friends! On Sunday, July 22nd, at 5 p.m., Joyce and I are thrilled to invite you all to join us for a very special evening of MAGICAL MANDOLIN, which will feature some of the most gorgeous works ever written for the unique combination of mandolin and piano. The alluring charm of these two instruments together has inspired many composers including Vivaldi, Beethoven, Hummel, and Calace. The all-Baroque first half of our program will showcase three Baroque delights: Vivaldi's sunny Mandolin Concerto in G Major, RV 532 (ca. 1725), Bach's impassioned Sonata in G Minor, BWV 1001 (ca. 1720), and Handel's ebullient Sonata in D Major, HWV 371 (ca. 1730). In the Classical Era, youthful Beethoven wrote a number of pieces for mandolin and piano during his sojourn in Prague for Countess and mandolinist Josephine von Clary-Aldringen, which include his sublime Adagio in E Major, WoO 43b (1796) and his spirited Andante con variazioni, WoO 44b (1796). The evocative incidental music, Peer Gynt, op. 23 (1875) by the Romantic Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg, is one of his most beloved and best known works from which he extracted eight movements to make two, four-movement suites. The enchanting Solveig's Cradle Song from Suite No. 2, op. 55 has been arranged for several instrumental combinations, perhaps most beautifully for mandolin and piano. An Italian mandolin virtuoso, luthier and composer, Raffaele Calace, wrote over 200 works for mandolin which include concert works for mandolin solo as well as chamber works for mandolin in combination with other instruments, including piano. The latter category includes his three characterful pieces: a cheerful Rondo, a melancholy Romanza, and the fiery Tarantella. We will conclude our program with Johann Nepomuk Hummel's brilliant Grande Sonate in C Major, op. 37a (1810) - one of the finest and most significant chamber music works ever written for the mandolin and piano, which unfolds in three contrasting movements: an exuberant Allegro con spirito, a heartfelt Andante moderato Siziliano, and a sparkling Rondo finale, full of virtuosic fireworks for both players alike. This special summer salon inspired by the Magical Mandolin is not-to-be-missed!!! Joyce and I wish you a fabulous summer and look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, July 22nd! Dr. Yelena Grinberg, founder and artistic director of the Grinberg Classical Salon Series WHEN: Sunday, July 22nd, 2018, at 5 p.m.           Doors will open at 4:30...

The program explores repertoire that lives at the intersection of color and sound, exploring this meeting of the senses through important works of the colorful Impressionistic era paired with new works created using Artificial Intelligence technology. In order to fully realize this concept, Chai completed a six-month residency at Cité des Arts in Paris, where she worked simultaneously on the musical performance and the paintings associated with each score. Sonorous Brushes was designed and premiered at Wigmore Hall in London on June 26, 2018. The program features Debussy Etudes Pour les huit doigts and Pour les quartes, Les tierces alternée and Feux d’artifice from Debussy’s Prelude Book 2 No.11, Frédéric Durieux’s Pour tous ceux qui tombent – Hommage à Ravel, Ravel’s Oiseux tristes, and Messiaen’s Cantéyodjayâ. The evening ends with two audio-visual works by Polish composer and Stanford University Music Department Chair, Jaroslaw Kapuściński: Side Effects and the US premiere of Calligraphies for Ziqi. Chai explains, “To begin our journey of synesthesia, we open with Frédéric Durieux’s Pour tous ceux qui tombent-Hommage à Ravel, a tribute to the melancholy often found in Ravel’s music, as so beautifully represented by Ravel’s Oiseux tristes. Messiaen’s Cantéyodjayâ, based on Indonesian rhythms, demonstrates the synesthetic composer’s use of sound palette in his own strong and expressionistic way. As we jump forward to the 21st century, Artificial Intelligence technologies such as the highly advanced Antescofo program allow computers to act as intelligent and attentive co-performers. As the performer plays, the computer listens and anticipates their actions. It can then play its own visual and...

    Jen Shyu — Voice Kiera Duffy — Voice Caroline Shaw — Voice $50 Festival Pass! See all three nights for $50 The second night of the Resonant Bodies Festival opens with composer/performer Jen Shyu presenting her solo work Nine Doors; operatic superstar Kiera Duffy will make her RBF debut, presenting a variety of pieces curated for the Festival; and Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw (of Roomful of Teeth) will perform works of her own composition. Resonant Bodies Festival was founded to catalyze the creation of new vocal music, to expand the audience for new vocal music, and to challenge and transform the role of the vocal recitalist. Since its inception in 2013, RBF has been greeted with sustained critical acclaim and the delight of audiences and vocalists alike. For three nights every September in New York City, nine vocalists are given curatorial carte blanche over a forty-five minute set. This freedom—rarely granted to vocalists in the contemporary music world—gives each show a “happy zealousness, where the singers’ enthusiasm for their repertoire [is] contagious” (Sequenza 21). Thanks to a generous grant from the Ellis L. Phillips Foundation, RBF had its Australian debut at the Melbourne Recital Centre on May 17, 2017, which was greeted with much enthusiasm from the international vocal music community. Since then, RBF has expanded to include festivals in Chicago and Sydney, with an LA festival slated for 2019. In addition to the festivals, RBF reaches 25,000+ listeners around the globe through MRMR, the Festival’s extensive collection of online resources. MRMR includes: professional audio, video, and photo documentation of each Festival; Resonant Bodies Podcast, which features in-depth interviews with vocalists year-round; and the Contemporary Vocal Music Database, an open, crowdsourced, searchable index of 20th and 21st century vocal works with links to musical scores, as well as audio and video recordings. The Database aids composers in promoting their works to a larger audience, and assists vocalists in their search for new and meaningful repertoire. Jen Shyu is a groundbreaking, multilingual vocalist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, 2016 Doris Duke Artist, and was voted 2017 Downbeat Critics Poll Rising Star Female Vocalist. Born in Peoria, Illinois, to Taiwanese and East Timorese immigrant parents, Shyu is widely regarded for her virtuosic singing and riveting stage presence, carving out her own beyond-category space in the art world. She has performed with saxophonist and 2014 MacArthur Fellow Steve Coleman since 2003 and has...

    Sarah Maria Sun — Voice Joined by International Contemporary Ensemble Pamela Z — voice, electronics Gelsey Bell — voice $50 Festival Pass! See all three nights for $50 Closing night of the Resonant Bodies Festival begins with German soprano Sarah Maria Sun collaborating with International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) on works by Georges Aperghis, Rebecca Saunders, Thierry Tidrow, and Màtyàs Seiber; the legendary San Francisco-based Pamela Z will perform a number of her compositions for voice and electronics; and renowned composer/soprano and 2014 Resonant Bodies Festival performer Gelsey Bell returns. Resonant Bodies Festival was founded to catalyze the creation of new vocal music, to expand the audience for new vocal music, and to challenge and transform the role of the vocal recitalist. Since its inception in 2013, RBF has been greeted with sustained critical acclaim and the delight of audiences and vocalists alike. For three nights every September in New York City, nine vocalists are given curatorial carte blanche over a forty-five minute set. This freedom—rarely granted to vocalists in the contemporary music world—gives each show a “happy zealousness, where the singers’ enthusiasm for their repertoire [is] contagious” (Sequenza 21). Thanks to a generous grant from the Ellis L. Phillips Foundation, RBF had its Australian debut at the Melbourne Recital Centre on May 17, 2017, which was greeted with much enthusiasm from the international vocal music community. Since then, RBF has expanded to include festivals in Chicago and Sydney, with an LA festival slated for 2019. In addition to the festivals, RBF reaches 25,000+ listeners around the globe through MRMR, the Festival’s extensive collection of online resources. MRMR includes: professional audio, video, and photo documentation of each Festival; Resonant Bodies Podcast, which features in-depth interviews with vocalists year-round; and the Contemporary Vocal Music Database, an open, crowdsourced, searchable index of 20th and 21st century vocal works with links to musical scores, as well as audio and video recordings. The Database aids composers in promoting their works to a larger audience, and assists vocalists in their search for new and meaningful repertoire. German soprano Sarah Maria Sun is regarded as one of the foremost leading specialists of contemporary music with a repertoire spanning more than 700 catalogued works and world premieres. Her unique artistry has captured the attention of the world’s leading composers, from Heinz Holliger, Helmut Lachenmann, Salvatore Sciarrino to Dieter Schnebel,...
