In this season’s special Town Music finale, be one of the first to hear the premiere of four original compositions. Specifically commissioned by Town Hall and Town Music Artist Director Joshua Roman, these works for voice and ensemble were created by composers Raymond Lustig, Amir Shpilman, Wang Jie, and Roman. Thematically ranging from love and life on Mars, to the beauty of winter, these four works were carefully curated for this evening. In addition to these pieces, Mary Mackenzie will also perform Schoenberg’s exalted 1912 song cycle “Pierrot Lunaire.” Described by The New York Times as “a soprano of extraordinary agility and concentration,” Mary Mackenzie has captured the attention, and admiration, of audiences across the country. The program also features performances by cellist Roman (pictured at left), returning Town Music favorite Bill Kalinkos (clarinet), Daria Binkowski, Karen Kim (violin/viola), and pianist David Kaplan. A passionate performer of contemporary music, Mackenzie has premiered numerous works by established composers and works closely with young up-and-coming composers to develop new works for voice.
