Peri Mauer's string quartet Shadow Lake will receive an encore performance by Klang Quartet January 15, 2019,7:30pm at The Little Church Around the Corner: Church of the Transfiguration located at 1 East 29th St., NYC.Shadow Lake was composed in 2016 and premiered the following year.The composer writes: 'I first heard the phrase 'music of place' around the time I decided to write a string quartet and found the concept intriguing. The 'place' I envisioned was a setting of a lake brought to life by shadows cast within the motion of the water. After coming up with the name Shadow Lake I did a Google search and found there are indeed a few bodies of water with that name. This particular Shadow Lake is not based on any of them though, existing solely as the manifestation of inspiration for the writing of this string quartet.' (more...)

BWW Review: The Flea Presents the World Premiere of Solondz's EMMA AND MAXBWW Review: The Flea Presents the World Premiere of Solondz's EMMA AND MAX
by Kristen Morale - Oct 25, 2018

There are many plays that evoke feelings and entertain and do everything that an admirable piece of theater is meant to; I cannot say, though, that these plays are as poignant or as tragically beautiful as Emma and Max: the show I was fortunate to see on its closing night.
