Magloire's New Chamber Ballet Set for 4/17-18
Miro Magloire's New Chamber Ballet will premiere works by director Magloire, to music by contemporary French composer Tristan Murail, and Constantine Baecher, set to music by Mozart, along with company repertory, April 17 & 18 at 8 PM, at the company's home base of City Center Studio 5, 130 West 56 Street.New Chamber Ballet resident choreographer Baecher has created a trio to music by Mozart, and Magloire will present a new duet to "La Mandragore" for piano, composed by Tristan Murail. From the repertory is Magloire's "Moments," billed as a solo, but in fact a duet for dancer Elizabeth Brown and violinist Doori Na, performing Salvatore Sciarrino's score on stage, alongside the dancer. The musician's gestures, the whispering of the strings, and the dancer's movements blend to form an intimate, rhapsodic duet for violin and dance. The Company will repeat Magloire's 2014 "Entangled," set to Paganini's Caprices Nos. 5, 2 & 6 for solo violin. Magloire's superb resident musicians, Melody Fader and Doori Na, distinguish themselves at every performance, masterfully performing an eclectic variety of music, from Haydn, Scriabin and Mozart to Kagel, Stockhausen and Boulez. Indeed, Philip Gardner noted that "Violinist Doori Na rightly won a round of bravos for his skillful playing of the ballet's Paganini score," (oberonsgrove, February 2014).
