Classical Music |
Hailed by the New Yorker as “expert and versatile musicians,” NOVUS NY String Quartet perform works by Webern and more. This concert is a part of a concert series focused on the complete works of Anton Webern; the trademark of the series is the juxtaposition of early and modern music.   Program Webern (1883-1945) Passacaglia, Op. 1 Webern (1883-1945) Im Sommerwind, Op. 21 Webern (1883-1945) Das Augenlicht, Op. 26 Webern (1883-1945) Kantate #2, Op. 31 Brahms  (1833-1897) A German Requiem Anton Webern, the noted Austrian composer and conductor, remembered for his atonal and serial works, was one of the key figures in the Second Viennese School. Unfortunately, with the rise of Nazis, his music was banned and he spent the last decade of his life in financial constraint and musical isolation. He was not very prolific composer, publishing only 31 works during his lifetime. Yet, he left a great impression with his radical compositions, influencing both his contemporaries and younger generations of musicians.

The artist Z’EV passed away this winter. Remembrances will be offered by friends, colleagues, and community members. In addition, a number of musical events presented by friends and collaborators will honor Z’EV.  Z’EV (born Stephan Joel Weisser) was a composer/percussionist, visual artist, poet and theorist. Since the late 1970s, he created his own abstract percussion soundscapes out of found materials, and he is regarded as a pioneer of industrial music (though he did not like the term himself). In his long career, he created unique performance strategies to explore sound in spaces, starting with acoustic sound and later working also with electronic sound. Critic Roy Sablosky wrote: "Z'EV doesn't just break the rules, he changes them." Journalist Louis Morra wrote in 1983: "Z'EV is a consummate example of contemporary performance art, as well as modern composition and theater;" and "Z'EV realizes many of modernist art's ultimate goals: primitivism, improvisation, multi-media/conjunction of art forms, the artist as direct creator."
