Karim Al-Zande: Lamentations on the Disasters of War, after the etchings by Goya
Frederic Rzewski: Knight, Death, and Devil
Laura Elise Schwendinger: High Wire Act
Andres Carrizo: Fantasia Sobre “Soledad”
Two visual masterworks, Dürer’s Knight, Death, and Devil and Goya’s lamentation on the Disasters of War, inspire uniquely personal statements by Fredric Rzewski and Karim Al-Zande on the theme of war. Piazzola’s musical images trigger Andres Carrizo’s deeply emotional Fantasia Sobre “Soledad.” Laura Elise Schwendinger, in high Wire act, conjures a brilliant sonic vision of Calder’s wire circus figures.
This program is a part of Contempo's 45th Season.
