New chamber opera by Louise Alenius

The world premiere of a work that invites the audience into a dysfunctional family. A grippingly hushed affair awaits when Silent Zone – Louise Alenius’s newly composed chamber opera – invites the audience into a dysfunctional family. A taboo-ridden event has robbed the daughter of the house of her language, prompting her brother to investigate the past on their shared behalf. Louise wrote her libretto after gathering statements from people who have had abuse up-close – and know how difficult it is to break a taboo once it’s settled in the walls, in the family, in the body.

His most recent accomplishments include being GQ Australia’s Artist of the Year (2016), as well as having several songs featured on Triple J’s desired ‘Hit List.’ Both Harts and Washington Square / Razor & Tie Co-Owner Cliff Chenfeld reflect on the announcement: “It's no secret the US birthed and nurtured a lot of the music and artists that influenced me to become what I am today,” said Harts. “I've had my heart set on establishing myself, and a fan base for myself here for many years. I'm thrilled to now be working with the team at Washington Square to make that happen. I'm excited for the journey ahead and I'm looking forward to spending time, finding success in the US.” “Harts is a sensation,” says Washington Square/Razor & Tie Co-Owner Cliff Chenfeld. “It is rare to see a new artist who both can write amazing, undeniable songs and play every instrument on his album.

2016 Grawemeyer Award for Hans Abrahamsen

The prestigious Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition has this year been given to Edition Wilhelm Hansen composer Hans Abrahamsen for his orchestral song cycle let me tell you. The work, setting a text by Paul Griffiths, was premiered in 2013 by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Andris Nelsons. The soprano part was sung by Barbara Hannigan to whom the work is dedicated. The Grawemeyer Awards announcement states: ’My words may be poor but they will have to do,’ intones Ophelia in the opening poem. Abrahamsen’s score infuses those limited words with emotional nuance and depth, said Grawemeyer award director Marc Satterwhite.’The vocal lines exquisitely mirror Griffiths’ fragile texts of the doomed Ophelia,’ said Satterwhite. ’The orchestra is a partner rather than mere accompanist and the composer draws a huge array of colors from the orchestra, delicate and shimmering more often than not, but occasionally in fuller force.’Hans Abrahamsen is the first Dane to receive the Grawemeyer Award. let me tell you is the second Grawemeyer Award-winning work on which music critic, poet and novelist Paul Griffiths collaborated. He also wrote the libretto for Marco Polo, which won Tan Dun the 1998 Grawemeyer Award in Music Composition. let me tell you has had an overwhelming 18 performances since its world premiere in December 2013 and more are planned, including the US premiere in January 2016 with the Cleveland Orchestra, to be conducted by Frans Welser-Möst with Barbara Hannigan as the soloist. The Cleveland Orchestra will give the New York Premiere at Carnegie Hall, then the Boston Symphony Orchestra will be perform the work in February. let me tell you also received the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Large-Scale Composition in 2015.The work has been recorded and is scheduled for release on Winter&Winter in early January 2016. The artists are Barbara Hannigan and Andris Nelsons with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. - See more at: http://www.musicsalesclassical.com/news/3336#sthash.Yfa9gxy6.dpuf
