The acclaimed Liquid Music Series from Saint Paul’s Chamber Orchestra continues its second season, bound and determined to “expand the world of classical music through innovative new projects, boundary-defying artists, and unique presentation formats”.
And that is exactly what we’ve witnessed, the handful of times W♥M has been on hand to witness what is no doubt the most curiously eclectic and always-interesting music series in the Upper Midwest.
This Thursday welcomes Moscow-born, Brooklyn-based composer/performer Olga Bell (best known for her work with Dirty Projectors) as she world premieres Krai, a nine-movement song cycle described as a sonic love letter to her Russian homeland; perfect and timely with the Sochi games in progress and Valentine’s holiday approaching.
The two-set evening will begin with an intimate collaborative set by Bell and special guest vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Angel Deradoorian, to be followed by Krai.
Expect echoes of traditional folk music, alongside modern electronica with accompanying projections by video artist Alejandro Crawford, who has worked with MGMT. “Origin/Outcome is a celebration of the hot-blooded human vernacular—the music to which we dance, eat, grieve, and revel.” ....sounds like a sweetheart of a show.
Co-presented by Walker Art Center, the SPCO’s Liquid Music series, and the American Composers Forum.
