Mami Kosemura’s video featured at Carnegie Hall
Friday, March 24, 2017
7:30 PM at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall
RU Alum Mami Kosemura's video collaboration with the composer Paola Prestini will be shown as a part of American Composers Orchestra Orchestra Underground: Past Forward program at Carnegie Hall.
Acclaimed for “consistently champion[ing] contemporary music with consistent excellence” (The New York Times), American Composers Orchestra showcases two premieres—one commissioned by Carnegie Hall—by two cutting-edge composers and a classic from Steve Reich, Tehillim (Hebrew for “psalms”). Inspired by cantillation he heard in Israel, Reich sets four psalms in an exotically scored and rhythmically invigorating work that pulses with life and is considered one of the modern master’s most thrilling compositions.
