Throughout the 20th century but even as far back as the French Baroque period, certain composers have expressed an extreme interest in cosmology (the stars, the planets, our place within the vast cosmos, and how music might connect us to other-worldly realms). From the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau to the mystic theosophist Alexander Scriabin, avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, jazz visionary Sun Ra and living improviser-composers Wadada Leo Smith and Jonathan Ragonese (both world premieres), this program explores sounds and forms that deliver us far from our Earth. For this concert, BLUEPRINTS is honored to present guest pianists Sylvie Courvoisier, Taka Kigawa, Tristan McKay (presenting a world premiere by composer Leah Asher), and Shira Shaked.
