    Boston Musica Viva: Origins Concert

    BMV’s closing concert of the 2011-2012 Season, “Origins,” celebrates the diverse cultural and musical heritages of four living composers. Carnatic soprano Deepti Navaratna (whom listeners might remember from BMV’s acclaimed 2010 production of Shirish Korde’s opera "Phoolan Devi: The Bandit Queen") and traditional Indian musicians join the ensemble for the world premiere of Korde’s song cycle "KA." Israeli composer Eitan Steinberg’s "Two Grandfathers Sing" artfully combines the musical traditions of Steinberg’s Hasidic Ashkenazi heritage with those of his wife’s Turkish Sephardic heritage. Latin American rhythms pervade Peruvian composer and Boston University alumnus Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann’s "Mecanismos." Microtonal composer Ezra Sims draws on the choral traditions of his native American South for "Landscapes," a set of five microtonal miniatures commissioned by BMV in 2008.
