WEDS@7: Palimpsest - Honoring Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Mario Davidovsky
Aleck Karis leads the Palimpsest Ensemble in a program honoring Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Mario Davidovsky.
Aleck Karis leads the Palimpsest Ensemble in a program honoring Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Mario Davidovsky. In 1959, the Argentine born composer emigrated to America at the behest of Aaron Copeland, with whom studied at the Berkshire Music Center (now Tanglewood). There he met Milton Babbitt, who encouraged Davidovsky’s move to New York City where he eventually became director of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center. In honor of Davidovsky, who passed away last August, Aleck Karis has chosen a program including: Flashbacks, Sefarad, Pennplay, and Biblical Songs, featuring Susan Narucki, soprano. The program will also highlight Milton Babbitt’s Composition for 12 Instruments, from which a new “palimpsest” composition with the same ensemble will be created by UC San Diego graduate composer Yi-hsien Chen.
