Dances and Canons – ECM New Series – released 10-10-2014

“Dances and Canons is the debut ECM recording of both composer Kate Moore and pianist Saskia Lankhoorn. Moore was born in England in 1979 and lives now in the Netherlands (where she studied with Louis Andriessen). However, it is Australia, where she grew up, which has left the strongest impression on her creative imagination, its teeming natural soundscapes transmuted in her music of hypnotically-swarming pulse patterns and shifting, layered planes of sound. In Dutch pianist Lankhoorn (also born 1979), Moore has a dedicated and resourceful interpreter. “It’s impossible to listen to this music,” writes George Miller in the liner note, “and not wonder about the enormous technical demands it makes of the performer.” Moore and Lankhoorn have collaborated regularly since 2003. As well as compositions for solo piano, the programme includes pieces for two pianos, four pianos and multiple pianos, realized in the Auditorio svizzera, Lugano, with Manfred Eicher as producer.” ECM New Series 10-10-2014

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost

Samir Calixto | Korzo producties

“Cultural icons are a preferred source of inspiration for the Dutch-Brazilian choreographer Samir Calixto. Previously, he used highlights from the classical music repertoire for his performances; this time, John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost serves as inspiration. This work from 1667 tells of man’s fall from grace and his banishment from paradise. Contrasts and oppositions drive the performance. Light, dark, good, evil, sacred, and godless; these oppositions are set up with an aim to discover parallels and peel off the many layers. Three dancers are driven with a strong physical intensity – a dance style characteristic of Calixto – through these paradoxical forces, until we see humanity as we know it: fragile, complex, and mortal. The western concept of sanctity is reviewed in an attempt to comprehend the ways in which man constantly submits to intangible forces.”
