Baker & Baker presents New Art, New Voices with Phillip Bush and Guests
February 3, 2019
Pianist Phillip Bush hosts a musical exploration of artistic pluralism in both style and voice. Bush, Ari Streisfeld (violin), Rachel Calloway (mezzo-soprano), and Claire Bryant (cello) join forces for a concert that celebrates and complements the new modern and contemporary galleries. Showcasing works by women and people of color, this program reflects both the fresh installation of the CMA collection and the dynamic world of contemporary classical music.
The concert features Kamala Sankaram's Kivalina, about the threat of rising seas to an Alaskan barrier island; Judith Weir’s The King of France, based on a 15th-century Sephardic Jewish song; a solo piano etude by Philip Glass connected to Chuck Close’s portrait of Glass on view; and Gabriela Lena Frank's evocative and colorful Four Folk Songs for violin, cello, and piano, drawn from Peruvian folk sources. Other composers represented include Alvin Singleton, Caroline Shaw, Luke Carlson, and Laura Schwendinger.
