In town this long weekend? Bargemusic will have a “Here and Now Labor Day Festival” featuring works by contemporary composers, most of which will be world premiere performances, with the others being New York premieres. The concert Friday evening, August 30 at 7:00 will include the world premiere of “Brooklyn Menu”, composed and played on piano by Brooklyn’s own Kathleen Supové (photo), of whose work Ben Sisario, in NY Press, wrote:
This was classical music played like the best rock’n’roll. It was passionate, earnest, loud and more complex than the gatekeepers of high culture would like to think. Brava.
The Saturday evening, August 31 concert, beginning, at 6:00, will include a world premiere of portions of “DECADE-ENCYCLE”, a work consisting of memorials to lost friends, by Brooklyn native composer Stanley Walden, performed on piano by Daniel Schosberg. For those who can’t make it to the Saturday concert, the program will be repeated, except that it will include the parts of Mr. Walden’s “DECADE-ENCYCLE” that weren’t included in the Saturday concert, on Sunday afternoon, September 1 at 4:00.
On Saturday afternoon at 4:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert, details here. Doors open at 3:45; first come, first seated.
