After releasing albums on Blue Note Records for a decade, the trio made its debut on the Impulse! Label with 2016’s Notes from New York. The DownBeat five-star review of the album calls it “a masterclass in class.” Its 2017 follow-up, Uptown, Downtown, is Grammy nominated for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. In 2015, Charlap teamed with Bennett on The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern, which earned a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Album. “Bill Charlap approaches a song the way a lover approaches his beloved …,” writes a journalist for Time. “No matter how imaginative or surprising his take on a song is, he invariably zeroes in on its essence.” Charlap has been the artistic director of New York City’s Jazz in July Festival for thirteen seasons. He’s also produced concerts for JVC Jazz Festival, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Hollywood Bowl. Charlap, who also performs in a duo setting with his wife, pianist and composer Renee Rosnes, is director of jazz studies at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey. Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.

Title:String Quartet ETHEL in Concert
Description: ETHEL will present new performances of its acclaimed show The River, an integral journey in instrumental virtuosity, song and storytelling. The tour comes in the wake of its 2016 NAMA-nominated release of the same title (Innova Recordings), and furthers ETHEL’s wildly successful nine-year collaboration with Native American musician, actor, writer, instrument builder and three-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Robert Mirabal. Here, ETHEL and Mirabal take inspiration from Water as the embodiment of the Spirit, and evoke the magic and majesty of “the river” which connects us all, with the live performance immersing the audience in a flow of music, narrative and ritual. The music of The River evokes timeless Native American traditions, re-imagined through the contemporary ear. The project has been featured by PRI’s The World, NPR’s Native America Calling, and, after making its premiere at the University of Washington, the Seattle Times wrote that the live show, “resides somewhere beyond the intersection of ceremony and show biz, at a place where multicultural collaboration becomes sacred art.” As delivered by these master performers, the effect is breathtaking, even ecstatic.”

Dorrance Dance - ETM: Double Down
Dates:Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Title:Dorrance Dance - ETM: Double Down
Description:Dorrance Dance honors tap dance’s history while pushing its rhythmic, technical, and conceptual boundaries. By incorporating other forms that have shaped American culture — such as street, club, and experimental dance — the company highlights the traditional elements of tap dance and its musical rhythms in a contemporary context. Founded in 2011 by artistic director and MacArthur “genius” Fellow Michelle Dorrance, the ensemble’s first performance earned a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for “blasting open our notions of tap.” ETM: Double Down, choreographed by Dorrance and company member Nicholas Van Young, is a 2016 evening-length work that uses electronic tap boards. The stage, in effect, becomes a musical instrument. The score is not just danced to but danced by the company. ETM, which stands for electronic tap music, features eight dancers and six musicians furiously exploring acoustic and digitally produced sounds. “Since the beginnings of tap dance, practitioners have been lugging around wooden boards, instruments used to drum upon with their feet,” writes a New York Times reviewer. “Now, in an era of electronic dance music, new possibilities beg to be explored. What if you plugged those boards into computers? That’s what Michelle Dorrance does with her troupe, Dorrance Dance, in ETM: Double Down, a fresh and innovative show … .”

It soon came to include what is now its hallmark, zapeteo, a fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras (throwing weapons made of intertwined cords and weighted with stones). Che Malambo, born from the heart of the gaucho tradition, is now thrilling audiences around the world with a new production created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas.

The youngest students in attendance, they soon became friends and continued to get together to play music in the years that followed. Two decades later, these Scandinavian string players — three Danes and a Norwegian who joined the mix in 2008 — constitute “one of the best quartets before the public today” (Washington Post). In its Penn State debut, the Danish String Quartet — violinists Frederik Øland and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen, violist Asbjørn Nørgaard, and cellist Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin — will perform Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 1; Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 7, Op. 59, No. 1; and a selection of Nordic folk tunes from the ensemble’s albums Wood Works (2014) and Last Leaf (2017). “In the talented hands of the Danish String Quartet these ‘Wood Works’ — traditional Nordic folksongs and dances — are buffed and polished to a glossy concert-hall sheen,” writes a Gramophone reviewer. Winner of the London (now Wigmore Hall) International String Quartet Competition in 2009, the ensemble has earned a reputation for its integrated sound, impeccable intonation, judicious balance, and “rampaging energy” (The New Yorker). The quartet’s ECM Records debut, Adès/Nørgård/Abrahamsen (2016), earned a five-star rating from a reviewer for The Guardian, who praises the album as “an exacting program requiring grace, grit, and clarity.” “Do not lose track of this group,” writes a Boston Globe critic. “Even by today’s high standards, it offers something very special.” Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this performance.
