The Music of Kate Moore in 'Paradise Lost'

Thursday, February 26, 2015 - 8:00pm to Tuesday, April 28, 2015 - 8:00pm

Last year the Brazilian-Dutch choreographer Samir Calixto left a shattering impression with his 4 Seasons, that made us aware of our mortality to the sounds of Vivaldi. For his new performance Paradise Lost, he sought inspiration in John Milton’s epic poem of the same name from 1667, about man’s fall from grace and his banishment from Paradise. With a strong physical intensity, characteristic of Calixto’s work, apparently conflicting forces drive the dancers on. Light, dark, good, evil, holy and godless. Long enough until we see humanity as we know it: fragile, complex and mortal. Original compositions are by Kate Moore.

Paradise Lost tours the Netherlands throughout Spring 2015.

Q2 Music Presents: BOAC All-Stars "Field Recordings" Album Release

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - 7:00pm

Preorder Field Recordings on iTunes now for an instant download of Jóhann Jóhannsson's Hz!

This May, trailblazing new-music ensemble Bang on a Can All-Stars unveil their newest album of world premiere recordings, a 13-track CD and DVD package of their project: Field Recordings. Be the first to hear the upcoming release from the ensemble dubbed “the country’s most important vehicle for contemporary music” (San Francisco Chronicle) with a performance of the complete album live from The Greene Space at WQXR.

Hear recent works by Steve Reich, Christian Marclay, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Anna Clyne, Todd Reynolds, Bang on a Can co-founders David Lang, Julia Wolfe, and Michael Gordon, and genre-hopping provocateurs Tyondai Braxton (formerly of Battles), Mira Calix, Nick Zammuto (The Books), Florent Ghys, and Bryce Dessner (The National).

Field Recordings asks composers to go into the field of recorded sound itself – to find something old or record something new, and to respond with their own music, in dialogue with what they found. What they have created is a bridge through time, sensation, and sound – a thrilling ride from New York to Hollywood to Las Vegas, from John Cage to French Canadian folk singing, from beauty treatments to tape loops, vinyl records, and more. With "Field Recordings," one hundred years of sound and imagery unfold to reveal a contemporary collective consciousness channeled through the virtuosity and force of the electric Bang on a Can All-Stars.

Hosted by Q2 Music's Helga Davis, the evening includes on-stage conversation with performers and composers.
