Gonzalo Ruiz, oboe and english horn Cynthia Roberts, violin Sarah Darling, viola Beiliang Zhu, violoncello Mozart in Prague House of Time spirits us to Prague, the city that welcomed Mozart with far more warmth than he received back home in Vienna. The group performs a trio and quartets by Mozart as well as his expressive and richly scored Adagio for English Horn and Strings in C Major, K.580a. Bohemian music is represented by two pieces of František Krommer—his Variations on a Czech Folk Song, and his Quartet No. 1 in C Major; and by Vaclav Pichl’s String Trio in A Major. “The musicians established their fluency and command early on… The program carried the implicit message that great music is never an exit ramp out of reality. It’s an exploration of human experience in its widest and deepest dimensions.”—San Francisco Classical Voice Artist Website: House of Time The musicians of House of Time, known for their “fluency and command” (San Francisco Classical Voice), are dedicated to playing both well-known and underperformed repertory of the 17th through the 21st century on period instruments.

Max Schieble, better known as Elbows, is a Brooklyn-based songwriter, vocalist, and genre-bending producer raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Combining elements of old school hip hop, futuristic electronic production, and bygone jazz instrumentation, with deliberate hooks, expansive vocal harmonies, and sporadic sampling, he creates ever-changing soundscapes all filtered through a sharp pop sensibility. Some folks – Elbows included – would describe the sound as that of "time travel.” In 2015 he released his debut single “Flowers,” which Indie Shuffle described as, “nothing less than intriguing.” A self-directed video (co-directed by New Jersey filmmaker Nnamdi Simon) followed later that year. He has performed live throughout New York, and has appeared with Sarah Neufeld (of Arcade Fire), Kendra Morris, Caged Animals, and more. Additionally, Elbows is a multimedia artist, creating expansive narrative projects that connect across platforms such as visual art, film, and product, as well as music. In 2016 he opened his first solo exhibit, At The Bottom Of The Well, at Brooklyn’s IMAGE Gallery. The two-month installation featured large-scale canvases, screen prints, and original drawings, all displaying Schieble’s vibrantly surreal aesthetic of multi-faces, legged-furniture, and dotted limbs. An original score accompanied the exhibit. This May Elbows will release his debut project, the Corduroy EP. After an intensive stretch of recording sessions that saw Elbows travel back and forth between San Francisco and New York, he amassed a body of work chronicling his upbringing in the foggy Bay Area. Corduroy serves as an encapsulating introduction to this larger collection, with songs shifting from dusty boom bap beats to oafish 808s, and from jazzy guitar chops to cloudy synth beds. Throughout the array of textures and tempos, Schieble’s comfortably peculiar persona emerges through witty, yet introspective lyrics, with song topics touching on self realization, relationship standoffs, and supporting family through dark times. The Corduroy EP is due out May 19th, along with an accompanying product collection, featuring cassette tapes, a pin collaboration with New York brand, Pintrill, and more. A slew of east coast dates will take Elbows on the road throughout the summer. Time is twisted on L’Rain, the debut release by L’Rain (Taja Cheek), a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, “tape” manipulator and vocalist from Brooklyn. Rising on a wave of synths and breathy sax, the album unfolds with electric guitar arpeggios and undulating vocal swells, unwrapping a dense...
The Queens Symphony Orchestra presents the second in its series of Masterworks Concerts titled "Destination Italy" conducted by the company’s Music Director Martin Majkut on Friday evening, March 23, 2018 at 7:30 PM at Flushing Town Hall. Repertoire includes Schubert's Overture in the Italian Style, Stravinsky's Pulcinella and Vivaldi's The Four Seasons featuring violinist Kinga Augustyn. TICKETS ARE FREE TO THE PUBLIC. RESERVATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED. SEATING WILL BE ON A FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVED BASIS. ABOUT THE REPERTOIRE For centuries, Italy was the musicians’ Mecca. Italians brought the art of polyphonic singing to its highest peak and discovered the power of melody for the world". Franz Schubert, known as one of music’s greatest melodists, had never been to Italy but he felt the bond with his spiritual ancestors on the other side of the Alps. Overture in Italian Style is his homage to the style of music that is mighty in its simplicity. Stravinsky's Pulcinella, composed in the "neo-classical style" and features one of the characters from Italian commedia dell’arte. Stravinsky took early 18th century tunes and modernized them as he saw fit. This music is both old-fashioned and modern, realistic in one moment and distorted like a portrait by Picasso immediately thereafter. And finally, we get a true Italian! The Four Seasons is a set of four violin concertos, one for each season. Antonio Vivaldi created a work with irresistible melodies and a violin part that is not only virtuosic but also tells a story.

Men I Trust is an indie-dance band from Quebec City (Canada). Bio: Jessy and Dragos knew each other since their fourth year of high school. Back then (mid-2000’s), Dragos had somewhat of a background in classical piano and Jessy mastered the dark and esoteric art of the metal guitar solist. In 2012, while finishing his master’s degree in audio postproduction at Laval University with S. Lacasse, S. Stévance and S. Samson, Dragos spent most of his days and sleeping hours at the “LARC” studio working on his solo projects. He randomly met Jessy again, who was finishing his bachelor degree in Jazz guitar, in one of the faculty’s hallways and talked about doing a French-Touch / Italo-Disco track together. Some weeks later, they did just that. And it worked out so well that they decided to extend their collaboration to a whole project where many singers would be involved. Between 2012 and 2016, all of Jessy’s and Dragos’ (now pursuing a PhD) releases were made as part of Dragos’ masters and PhD studies in order to gain access to the LARC’s infrastructure and to develop a unique sound by mixing and mastering at the same time, achieving loud, large and high quality renders. In 2013, Jessy and Dragos were introduced to Odile by a mutual friend. Odile was then completing her bachelor degree as a classical singer. Her voice struck Jessy and Dragos, already both hardcore classical music fans, by its clarity and power. Odile had no clue what we were about to do, when she came at the studio to record the “Introit”, their first baroque essay. She came up with the melody of the voice on the spot and the song became one of Men I Trust’s highlights. After the release of their first album “Men I Trust” (2014), the group had a rapid local success in Quebec and made it on several radio, web and paper charts. Emma was a fortuitous encounter. In 2015 a mutual friend presented her to Dragos through a video posted over the Internet. She was casually singing and playing the guitar around a campfire with some of her friends. Emma’s voice was on the opposite spectrum of that of Odile, being less clear, more grainy and fragile with a mysterious twist that caught their attention. They reached her and tried recording one song called “Out in myself”, which turned to be one of the band’s easiest to record in Dragos’s small Montreal apartment. The band then invited her to join them on live shows at the beginning of 2015. The girls’ voices blended wonderfully together and the band got lots of positive feedback from the experience. Emma has been part of us since then. With their second...

Norwegian artist Susanna has never been one to shy away from the great questions in her music. With ‘Go Dig My Grave’, her 12th album, she explores historic musical gaps by combining music from the Great American Songbook and old English traditionals with baroque instrumentation and her own, characteristic vocal interpretations. Add some Henry Purcell, some Lou Reed, and Susanna’s own composition, and the unique complexity of Susanna’s artistry is evident: ‘Go Dig My Grave’ is a profoundly personal collection of dark songs with deep roots through centuries of American and European musical heritage. The album marks Susanna’s return to her collaboration with Swiss baroque harp player Giovanna Pessi. Pessi first appeared alongside Susanna on the album ‘Sonata Mix Dwarf Cosmos’, released on Rune Grammofon in 2007, and played a major role on the critically acclaimed ECM album ‘If Grief Could Wait’, a deep-dive into the sorrow-stricken music of Henry Purcell, Leonard Cohen and Susanna herself. The two invited the talented young accordion player Ida Løvli Hidle and the great Norwegian fiddle player and folk singer Tuva Livsdatter Syvertsen to premiere the music at Kongsberg Jazzfestival in July 2017 and record an album. The result is a dynamic band that easily masters subtle shifts from the simple folk feeling of songs like Elizabeth Cotten’s ‘Freight Train’ to the icy beauty of Purcell’s ‘Cold Song’ and the complex, centuries old lament of ‘The Willow Song’. In concert Giovanna Pessi and Susanna plays the new album ‘Go Dig My Grave’ and from their previous ‘If Grief Could Wait’, and at the Park Church Co-op in Brooklyn they are joined by the amazing musicians Frode Haltli on accordion and Cheyenne Mize on fiddle and vocals. —————— The Norwegian artist Susanna is a rare and distinct voice in international art pop, and has been releasing music since 2004 with the duo ‘Susanna and the Magical Orchestra’, as ‘Susanna’ and under her full name, Susanna Wallumrød. She is known for her transforming of songs by AC/DC, Dolly Parton, Thin Lizzy and Leonard Cohen among others, but also for her strong originals and collaborations with artists like Jenny Hval, Ensemble neoN, Deathprod and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Her previous album ‘Triangle’ received notable international praise for its originality and musical ambition. Susanna has received three Norwegian Grammy awards (Spellemannprisen) in Open Category for her recordings, and several other awards as a singer and composer. Giovanna Pessi, based in Basel, Switzerland, has studied early music and historical harps in...

A blurring of opposites - old and new, sacred and secular, universal and highly personal - runs throughout the program; listeners will hear works by Josquin des Prez, Edie Hill, Tomás Luis de Victoria, Dale Trumbore, Abbie Betinis, and others. The course of the program meanders through awe, sadness, and mystery to hope and healing, meditating on the myriad ways we ourselves are reflected in nature throughout the journey.
