OM 1: Concert 2 (Nov. 5, 1993)

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 83 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds

The second concert of the inaugural Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 1), was held on November 5, 1993 at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. The concert began with composer and pianist Jon Jang performing an early piano solo version of his “Woman Shaman of Alishan” or as he refers to it here, “Woman Shaman of Ali Mountain.” This piece would later appear on his 1996 CD release “Two Flowers On A Stem” where it is orchestrated for a jazz ensemble. This is followed by Philip Glass’ own piano arrangement of a piece he originally scored for pipe organ entitled “Mad Rush,” and performed here by the composer. After an intermission the concert continues with a Barbara Monk Feldman’s “Duo for Piano and Percussion” with Julie Steinberg, violin and William Winant, percussion. We then here a series of three works composed by John Cage. First is his 1947 composition “Nocturne” for violin and piano, with Steinberg joined by her frequent collaborator violinist David Abel. Winant then rejoins the other two for a rendition of Cage’s “Music for 3,” before the concert concludes with Steinberg performing “In a Landscape” for solo piano.
