A Footnote

A Footnote

A footnote to those actions of the North American Minimalist Society’s Keyboard Division: Lest you think it’s easy to pinch a pipe organ pipe, well, it isn’t. Carefully planning and cunning alone aren’t always enough. Sometimes paranormal phenomena are required. Lucy, here, for example, is about to call upon powers she cultivated while earning her Girl Scout Dark Arts Merit Badge – reputed to be second in complexity only to the Thin Mints as a Lethal Weapon Merit Badge. She’ll then be able to stroll out of the Royal Albert Hall with a 32-foot contra-bombarde tucked underneath her cap. And although the pilfered pipe was ultimately recovered – from a pipe and tobacco shop in Islington – Lucy refused to restore it to its original size – and no one dared argue with her, at least not while she was brandishing that box of Thin Mints.

Upcomming Performances



Sunday February 10, 2013

Composer’s Voice presents the 3rd Annual Trajetória Brasileira, a concert featuring the music of Brazilian composers. This international collaboration will feature Prelúdio 21 performed by New York’s Bella Winds. Composer’s Voice will also present the U.S. premiere of Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame with flutist Maria Carolina Cavalcanti, an encore performance from the world premiere of the 15 works in Brazil last October. The 15 one-minute pieces by different composers from around the world were written specifically for this collaboration incorporating a Brazilian theme.

For more than 15 years, Prelúdio 21 has stood out against the backdrop of contemporary music of Rio de Janeiro, promoting a single aesthetic line of work, “creating a mosaic of different compositional styles”, as the musicians themselves do keen to highlight. Prelúdio 21’s CD Quartetos de Cordas [A Casa Discos] recorded by the string quartet Quarteto Radamés Gnattali was nominated for Best Classical Music CD for the 2012 Latin Grammy Award.
