About the Program
The first program of Collage’s 45th season focuses on William Kraft’s vivid and dramatic Settings from Pierrot Lunaire, music that turns to several of the poems by Albert Giraud that Schoenberg had not included in his seminal work. The brilliant Mary Mackenzie sings. Leading to the Kraft will be Rising Tide, by Nina C. Young, a gifted recent graduate of MIT whose music our listeners enjoyed last season, and the first performance of Hayg Boyadjian’s inventive, Piazzola-inspired Mi Tango No. 2-Al Abstracto.. Arthur Berger’s spiky and elegant Collage III and Andrew Rindfleisch’s exuberant What Vibes! add their vividly contrasting energies to the evening.
