Playing Havoc

Presenting the Houston premiere of "Voices from the Killing Jar" by Pulitzer Prize finalist, composer-performer Kate Soper

Musiqa presents the Houston premiere of Voices from the Killing Jar by Pulitzer Prize finalist, composer/performer Kate Soper. Part monodrama, part song-cycle, part opera, Voices from the Killing Jar crosses a volatile musical landscape populated by a series of female protagonists, among them housewives, teenagers, and mothers and daughters; innocents and tragic heroines; and femmes fatales. From Madame Bovary’s passionate whirlwind of delusion, to Lady Macduff’s terrified lullaby, to Clytemnestra’s hypnotic and deadly rage, each one is brought to vivid and unforgettable life as Soper’s mercurial voice traces a path through their stories.


On the Program

Kate Soper: Voices from the Killing Jar for soprano, ensemble and electronics

Featuring

Kate Soper, soprano; Andrew Nailey, baritone; Kayla Faurie, flute; Dan Gelok, saxophone; Blake Wilkins, percussion; Wesley Ducote, piano; Jackson Guillen, violin; Timothy Roy, electronics; with Jerry Hou, conductor

When:
Apr 13, 2018
Kate Soper is a composer, performer, and writer whose work explores the integration of drama and rhetoric into musical structure, the slippery continuums of expressivity, intelligibility and sense, and the wonderfully treacherous landscape of the human voice. She has been hailed by The Boston Globe as “a composer of trenchant, sometimes discomfiting, power” and by The New Yorker for her “limpid, exacting vocalism, impetuous theatricality, and…mastery of modernist style.” A Pulitzer Prize finalist, Soper has received awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters (The Virgil Thomson and Goddard Lieberson awards and the Charles Ives Scholarship), the Koussevitzky Foundation, and Chamber Music America. Praised by the New York Times for her “lithe voice and riveting presence,” Soper performs frequently as a new music soprano. Soper is a member of Wet Ink, a New York-based new music ensemble dedicated to seeking out adventurous music across aesthetic boundaries. She is the Iva Dee Hiatt Assistant Professor of Music at Smith College.

Musical Madness

From Outrageous Fugues to Murderous Madrigals, Houston's conductorless ensemble closes their season

MUSICAL MADNESS

From outrageous fugues to murderous madrigals,
Houston’s dynamic chamber ensemble, KINETIC, closes their 2017-18 season with
“Musical Madness” on Sunday, May 6, 6:30pm at MATCH – a daring and virtuosic
program that spans four centuries and includes two premieres.

Featuring six distinct pieces, the program explores elements of musical risqué in the works of composers who, throughout history, dared to challenge the status quo. With a rich sense of musical lineage threaded throughout, “Musical Madness” also offers nod to individuals who ultimately changed the course of music history: Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov recalls the ghost of Astor Piazzolla in his Tango-infused Last Round; Estonian Erkki-Sven Tüür pays homage to the alarmingly progressive music of Renaissance duke, Carlo Gesualdo in his haunting L’ombra della croce – which will be a U.S. Premiere – and KINETIC’s very own violinist-composer, Giancarlo Latta will offer his own reflections upon Beethoven’s infamous Grosse Fuge in his new work, written specially for KINETIC.

venues, Anderson Fair, 2007 Grant Street, Houston, Texas 77006.

the masterful songwriters that have done their thing there. Also, the sound in
that room is crazy amazing. It’s like a warm bath of sparkly vibrations…yum
yum.”
