Mingle @ Mingei: Embracing the Wind
Sun, Mar 13 at 5:30pm
Embracing the Wind – modern music with ancient roots
flute, violin, bass, harp, percussion
Graceful, slightly exotic and playful – this program showcases current music of our time that is “classical” and yet rooted in world and jazz elements.
In the The Book of Goddesses (flute, harp, percussion) composer Robert Paterson creates his own sound world with styles of music from India, Cuba, Ireland and Greece. Embracing the Wind by Paterson evokes the wind and other earthly elements – reminding us to live our best lives, no matter what the world presents to us.
In this program we will be featuring several composers from south of the border – Omar Acosta, Arturo Márquez, Ignacio Cervantes and Andrés Martin. Their music celebrates life with bold melodies and a playful beat. Alisei by Italian composer Stefano Scodanibbio adds intrigue to the evening. Stefano is described as "a tremendous bassist, a fearless improviser, and a gifted composer.” Join us for a fantastical journey.
