Two timeless musical traditions will come together in Kammerraku, a program of new chamber music compositions combining the classic string quartet with Japanese instruments to create a stunning new musical experience. The Voxare String Quartet will be joined by three traditional Japanese music virtuosos for a performance of four new compositions commissioned by Kyo-Shin-An Arts. Kammerraku (literally chamber music: kammer from the German and raku from the Japanese) is a program of Kyo-Shin-An Arts, an organization dedicated to the integration of Japanese instruments into Western classical music. Showcasing composers and performers from both cultural backgrounds, the evening will feature two world premieres and one New York premiere of works commissioned by Kyo-Shin-An Arts. The lineup includes: *Koto Concerto: Genji - Written by American composer Daron Hagen, a well-known figure in the opera world, this operatic work for koto and quartet is based on an 11th-century Japanese tale about a man who falls in love with a koto player whose face he's never seen. *Shakuhachi Quintet (New York Premiere) - Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Paul Moravec wrote this chamber concerto for shakuhachi and quartet. The piece's third movement is based on a six-note melody, C-D-G-A-E-F, spelled out in "Love’s Labour’s Lost," making it the world's first shakuhachi-Shakespeare mashup. *String Journey (World Premiere) - James Nyoraku Schlefer's musical tale of a samurai who becomes a wandering minstrel is written for shamisen and quartet. Schlefer, an American, is one of only a few non-Japanese artists to have achieved the rank of Grand Master on the shakuhachi, a Japanese bamboo flute. *KyoShin (World Premiere) - Japanese composer Somei Satoh’s ruminative sextet for koto, shakuhachi, and quartet uses repetition and silence to create a calming and compelling soundscape.

Drawing from his ongoing series of podcasts, Sam Dingman presents an evening of true tales from his days as a taxi driver in New York City, complete with toothless convicts, frozen embryos, murderous city buses, mobbed-up body shops, and much much more. Along the way, he finds that no matter how many insane things he sees on the pothole-ridden streets of New York, the craziest one of all may be himself.
