Sons of SerendipFriday, October 16, 2015 | 8:00 pm | Gardiner Theater
naugurating the 42nd Season, the Series makes a bow to melodic, contemporary American sounds - pop music - with a most unusual quartet, Sons of Serendip.
A lead vocalist, a pianist/guitarist, a cellist/vocalist, and a harpist found themselves by chance in grad school at Boston University. The television competition, America's Got Talent, gave the musicians First Place and this summer they are performing with the Boston Pops. Pretty good fortune, we say.
Pablo Ziegler QuartetFriday, November 13, 2015 | 8:00 pm | All Saints' Chapel
atin Grammy-winner Pablo Ziegler, pianist for the late Astor Piazzolla for over a decade, is the Buenos Aires-born pianist and composer who helped define the modern tango. His quartet brings the rich Argentine musical tradition of New Tango into a chamber music setting with the music of tango legends like Ángel Villoldo, Gerardo Matos Rodríguez and Ástor Piazzolla, as well as arrangements of his own compositions. Featuring piano, bandoneon, cello and double bass, Ziegler's quartet for New Tango breathes with nuance and refinement.
"Ziegler... plays straight from the beating, bleeding heart of nuevo tango, with its Argentinian mix of swagger and sweetness" — The Guardian
New York PolyphonyFriday, December 18, 2015 | 8:00 pm | All Saints' Chapel
raised for a “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts” (National Public Radio), New York Polyphony is regarded as one of the finest vocal chamber ensembles in the world. The four men, “singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure,” (The New Yorker) apply a modern touch to repertoire that ranges from austere medieval melodies to cutting-edge contemporary compositions. Their dedication to innovative programming, as well as a focus on rare and rediscovered Renaissance and medieval works, has not only earned New York Polyphony critical acclaim, but also helped to move early music into the classical mainstream.
Sultans of StringFriday, April 1, 2016 | 8:00 pm | All Saints' Chapel
he 2010 JUNO Award nominees and “Canada’s ambassadors of musical diversity,” the Sultans of String thrill their audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Spanish Flamenco, Arabic folk, Cuban rhythms, and French Manouche Gypsy-jazz, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar while a funk bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound.
“Energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn… the very epitome of world music: no boundaries, no rules… the sort of band and music that would rip up any festival in the country!”
