Classic Arts News   Bargemusic's New "Here and Now" Series to Launch With Music of George Crumb
 
Bargemusic, New York's floating concert venue, is launching a new series called "Here and Now," dedicated to contemporary American chamber music. The new endeavor begins on May 30 and June 1 with a program of works by George Crumb, performed by the SoNaR ensemble.

The concerts will feature Processional (1983), performed by pianist Steven Beck, Vox Balaenae ("Voice of the Whale," 1971), Four Nocturnes (1964) and Black Angels (1970).

SoNaR (Sound Navigation Ranging) is dedicated to the performance of contemporary chamber music; its members include flutist Patti Monson, violinists Aaron Boyd and Amos Fayette, violist Maurycy Banaszek, cellist Benjamin Capps and pianist Steven Beck.

Capps, SoNaR's founder, considers Crumb's music an ideal, even obvious, choice for launching "Here and Now," according to a statement from Bargemusic, as it incorporates traditional, electronic and world music as well as theatrical components and is accessible to a wide range of listeners.

Bargemusic is located on a converted barge docked at the Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn Heights, at the foot of Fulton Street and in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge. Visit www.bargemusic.org for more information.
