Musiqa presents the Houston premiere of by Pulitzer Prize finalist, composer/performer Kate Soper. Part monodrama, part song-cycle, part opera, 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
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.

Uptown Dance Company partners with Houston’s Axiom Quartet
for two performances of “Hidden Dimensions,” a program of three new
dance works all performed to live music. The performances, which take
place at Uptown Dance Centre, feature music from three Phillip Glass
String Quartets, the first Cello Suite by Benjamin Britten, and
selections from Axiom Quartet’s upcoming debut album (“Axiom – Moments
of Truth,” release date April 13, 2018, Parma Recordings).
Choreographer Andre Silva, current principal dancer with Texas Ballet
Theater, returns to Uptown Dance Company with his newest creation, Hidden Dimension.
Mr. Silva explores a narrative approach to his choreographic process,
creating a work that portrays a woman caught in a dream realm. Music
from Axiom’s new album inspired Artistic Director Beth Gulledge-Brown’s
newest pas de deux, titled At first sight. Ms. Gulledge-Brown
describes her work as an example of “art imitating life.” Guest dancer
Rupert Edwards returns to perform in this new work. Houston audiences
will get the rare opportunity to hear one of the solo cello suites by
Benjamin Britten in a live performance. Axiom cellist Patrick Moore and
choreographer Alex Pandiscio extracted themes in the work that
resonated with them both – fate, separation, trauma, love, fear, and
triumph. These themes form the basis for the programmatic work, Entanglement.
