Bowed Piano Ensemble
The Bowed Piano Ensemble, the internationally renowned experimental music group of Colorado College, will be at Carroll University on Wednesday, March 13, 2013. Soprano soloist Victoria Hansen will join the group, which will present a master class at 5 p.m. and a performance at 7:30 p.m. Both events will be in the Dorothy Goff Frisch Recital Hall of Shattuck Music Center, 218 N. East Ave., Waukesha, and are free and open to the public.
The program will feature director Stephen Scott’s newest work, “Afternoon of a Fire,” a commemoration of the Waldo Canyon fire of 2012. Also on the program are Scott’s “Aurora Ficta (False Dawn),” “New York Drones” and “Baltic Sketches.” The ensemble will accompany Hansen in two vocal pieces, “Vocalise” and “La Guitarra,” from Scott’s song cycle “Paisajes Audibles (Sounding Landscapes).” The online journal “New Music Box” said of this work, “When Hansen sings along with the Bowed Piano Ensemble expect the walls to melt down again as you return to the almost primordial atmosphere guaranteed to enrapture.”
