Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival 2021, now in its 23rd season, will offer two concerts in the Thalia Theater in Symphony Space on April 12 and 19, 2021. These concerts will explore facets of contemporary music by living composers, all of whom will be present to discuss their works on stage with host and creator, Victoria Bond. Both programs will be streaming live on Victoria Bond's YouTube channel at 7:30 p.m. ET.
This program highlights the stories of immigrants, as told through the beautiful playing of native flutist Ron Warren and pianist and chanter Paul Barnes. Featuring Warren’s own compositions, Barnes performs the NY premiere of the composer’s Distances Between 2, and together they’ll play Beads. Barnes also performs the NY premieres of Philip Glass’ Annunciation Piano Quintet (arranged for solo piano by Barnes), David von Kampen’s Trisagion, and the world premiere of Victoria Bond’s Potirion Sotiriu, Simeron Kremate, Enite ton Kyrion.
