anaclase_krisztina-szaboSeptember 29th features two concerts.  At noon in the RBA there’s a free concert by Arraymusic titled Love Shards of Sappho. It features Barbara Monk Feldman’s The Love Shards of Sappho and Linda Catlin Smith’s Hieroglyphs.  Later, at 8pm at Koerner Hall, Adrianne Pieczonka and Krisztina Szabó are performing contemporary music as part of the Soundstreams series.  Adrianne will sing Berio’s arrangements of Beatles songs while Krisztina will perform George Crumb’s American Songbook, which uses a wide array of percussion instruments to transform spirituals, hymns, Civil War songs, and other folk material into contemporary soundscapes. She will also perform the world premiere of Analia Llugdar’s Romance de la luna, luna, a flamenco-flavoured work inspired by the Lorca poem of the same name.  Not a bad day for contemporary song!
