    Boston Musica Viva's

    Presented by Boston Musica Viva at Tsai Performance Center

    November 18, 2011


    Boston Musica Viva's

    In this concert by Boston Musica Viva, Boston's first professional contemporary chamber music ensemble, cellist Jan Mueller-Szeraws premieres a cello concerto by Bernard Hoffer, whose work has been heard on PBS’s The American Experience and the hit cartoon Thundercats. John Elmquist took inspiration from the recent Gulf oil spill for "Junk Shot," which won the national 2011 Rapido! Composition Contest. "Crossing the Meridian," Ronald Perera’s song cycle featuring tenor Frank Kelley, sets to music introspective texts by William Carlos Williams, Hart Crane, and other great American poets on “those moments when time can seem frozen to us.” Donald Martino’s B.A.B.B.IT.T for solo clarinet with unusual “extensions” was composed as a 50th birthday present for Martino’s teacher and friend, Milton Babbitt.

    Featuring: Ann Bobo (flute), William Kirkley (clarinet), Geoffrey Burleson (piano), Robert Schulz (percussion), Teresa Ling (violin), Dimitri Murrath (viola), Jan Mueller-Szeraws (cello), Frank Kelley (tenor)
