Zodiac Trio

January 31, 2011, Seully Hall, Boston, MA

The Boston New Music Project has again summoned the Zodiac Trio from Paris to perform works it commissioned by Berklee and Boston Conservatory faculty and to showcase new works by the school’s promising students. The Zodiac Trio — Vanessa Mollard, violin, Kilment Krylovskiy, clarinet, Riko Higuma, piano — are a very polished and keen contemporary ensemble with an impressive list of credits and well-earned accolades. Their audience at Seully Hall on January 31 enjoyed world premieres of pieces written especially for the Zodiac Trio by BC’s Andy Vores (Fabrication 17: Stunt) and Berklee’s Andrew List (Visions From The Aboriginal Dreamtime) and two other modernist classics.

List’s Visions re-imagines creation legends of the cosmos in four linked movements, from protozoic miasma through the songlines to dances of unbridled frenzy: I. Introduction (In the beginning the world was featureless, flat and grey“); II. The Dreamtime (Giant mythical beings rose up out of the grey plains where they had been slumbering for countless ages“); III. Love Is a Gift From the Dreamtime (The mythical beings create universal love“); IV. Corroboree (“Spirits from the Dreamtime show the people how to live“).

A sotto voce prelude leads to high violin harmonics, signaling a gentle dawn; then oscillating lines lead to an acerbic 2/4 of martial drama and sudden conflict, with subtle references to Stravinsky and Bartók. A bucolic legato 4/4 (violin and clarinet) signals the love theme; a dulcet clarinet melody rides over piano triplets and soars with violin alone before the piano returns with neoclassical underpinnings. A hard 4/4 piano ostinato (with added sforzando final beats) brings forth playfully rumbling dance figures, with linear echoes of Eastern Europe. A rolling clarinet figure, picked up by piano and violin, carries the piece to a bold, satisfying conclusion. List’s serene celebration of “the oneness of all living beings.” like that of the Aborigines, aims at preserving ancestral heritage, in this case by revisiting honored traditions within European classical music.

  2. / Merci pour ce test très complet et bien référencé, je n’ai pas trop compris la réaction de yolsgens pour le coup. Même en relisant rapidement je n’ai pas vu de favoritisme particulier, quant à ne pas prendre ce que dit quelqu’un comme parole d’évangile, ma foi ça ne se limite pas qu’à BGP, ça s’applique à la vie en générale Je n’attends que la version Steam pour m’y mettre ! J’espère qu’elle sera autant mise à jour que ses consÅ“urs xbl et psn.

  4. I looooove Kare Kare and you're right – order something you can never make because it makes it that much more special. Kare Kare is my achilles heel… so I just leave it to the experts and order it from restaurants wheneverwe eat out at Cabalen and Barrio Fiesta in the Philippines!

  5. You're an optimist, Delaware Watch.I think we've pretty much doomed all higher (multi-cellular) living things to extinction and will ultimately leave behind a planet utterly contaminated by deadly levels of radioactivity.Evolution cannot happen when genes are constantly bombarded by radiation. Perhaps some single cell creatures living deep beneath the earth will eventually emerge to begin the evolutionary process again after the millions of years that will be required for the radioactive isotopes like plutonium to disappear.Have a good day.anonone

  9. Thanks Kath for this thought provoking article. We are just about to begin a unit of inquiry – which we have done previously.. Reading both your article and Lyn Erickson’s paper re Concept-based teaching and learning has guided my reflection on the unit. I hope that now it will develop from more of an inquiry stance using your suggestion of a rich question to drive the inquiry. This will keep the learner thinking which should lead to increased understanding and be more conceptually driven through the children drawing out / identifying supporting concepts.

  11. The initial invasion of Afghanistan had to happen. They were sheltering OBL and they refused to hand him over.Why would their sheltering OBL entail that we had to invade Afghanistan?OBL was seeking peace. We could have and should have come to a negotiated peace agreement and settled their outstanding grievances with us.(By the way, I don't think it is true that they refused to hand him over. But that is immaterial to my main objection, above, to your argument.)

  12. Schöner Bericht der zeigt, was Unternehmen uns inzwischen als “nachhaltig” verkaufen. In den allermeisten Fällen wird ja von Kunden oder Medien überhaupt nicht nachgehakt (oder auch nur kritisch hinterfragt). Wir Konsumenten müssen sollten uns einfach mal angewöhnen, einschlägige Phrasen aus Politik, Wirtschaft und Medien wörtlich zu nehmen (was bedeutet eigentlich “nachhaltig” oder “Klimaschutz”, gibt es “umweltfreundliche” Produkte?).

  16. J’ai vu que plein de sites propose de la spiruline importée de Chine, alors qu’il y a de nombreux producteurs de spiruline en France, c’est dommange et ne va pas avec un souci écologique et éthique (ces importations générent du co2 ; la spiruline de Chine n’a pas bonne réputation , il faut produire locale…) > est-ce que consoGlobe achète sa spiruline en France ?? merci de votre réponse

  17. that car fire also was deliberately set, although it’s still unclear whether the two fires are connected. That remains under investigation, Doucette said.I’m sure they are not connected.

  18. corazon solo llevan seis meses de relacion, relajate y disfruta de lo que tienen para tomar ese tipo de decisiones tienen tiempo no lo apures ni te apures a vos misma, como sabes que el es la persona con la que queres tener hijos aun no lo conoces lo suficiente. Calmate y aprovecha este momento de felicidad en vez de planear los proximos diez a;os.

  19. I feel that most farming in Africa is predominantly organic or do we have statistics to prove otherwise? Coupled with population growth, Africa cannot feed itself without use of chemicals/pesticides to increase yields per unit area. For Africa to rely entirely on organic farming will require new technological breakthroughs that increase output per unit area.

  20. This is perfect timeing for me. I need to remind my self of these helpful ways to get through a semi crisis at work.It happened friday and I waited until Monday to discuss it with the person because I did not want to say anything I might regret.It worked to my advantage and I will print your post and re-read when I fell the need.thanks for a great post

  21. Fantastic blog! I really love how it is effortless on my eyes and the data is well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

  23. I remember the first time I found out about coffee cake in the US; I was living in California and saw them on sale at the superarkets. Made some since, and I really love the idea of a coffee cake. Especially if it is homemade.

  24. I haven't tried Strava Matt. I had a look at yours and it seems similar. From my experiences I really like Endomondo. Check the link to it on my blog. p.s. i would have been coming out to the race series but Wednesday's are a no go for me.

  25. Anita: Join the club in the "I can't remember" group! It is a fun book, and informative. My husband just wishes I'd forget where I put it and stop laughing as I share "a premise of logicians" or "a pound of pianists".

  26. Ja, sikke nogle smÃ¥ himmelske bidder – de ser SÃ… lækre ud, dem vil jeg teste. Jeg er vild med kombinationen med chokolade og hindbær :O) Tak for opskriften og rigtig god dag til dig, Ditte.

  27. Hvor ser der smukt ud i Flensborg. Ja lad os springe den toldfrie handel over og nyde sådan en smuk by istedet. I sommers, da vi kørte mod færgen fra Berlin, var vi lige et smut forbi Rostock. Det er sørme også en smuk by. Og stor. Men med både gamle bygninger og kvarterer samt nye strøggader. Der kunne vi sagtens tilbringe en forlænget weekend. Og lidt skægt, da Rostock for mig bare har været havnen færgen sejler til, når vi skal til Berlin:-)Kate

  28. Earl, it’s not a matter of lubricating the point “with lots of theological oil and let it slide.” This point which seems so huge in your mind is absolutely without any practical application in mine. I preach as though every person is elect. I assume that a person who is responding to the message is elect. There is no practical difference. A person who believes in election and predestination (which are biblical terms my brother, not created by John Calvin) simply leaves the electing to God and preaches to whosoever will. It’s not difficult or challenging in any greater way than preaching to the same congregation as a traditionalist.

  29. Think historically: The Church once had the power to enthrone kings; Martin Luther was a 16th century theologian and Catholic priest who disagreed with the Church doctrine and practices. He was excommunicated amd decreed an outlaw by the emperor. When the church had that much power and influence AND one lived in a Catholic region, excommunication was brutal.

  30. The systems are joined by alternating leader 1-3 and try out 1-4 glycosidic linkages. The kappa-carrageenan along with agarose gels engrossed in sea salt solution will vary the rheological. It’s studied by the measurement involving longitudinal vibrations. The reason is ascribed to the shielding result of the electrostatic repulsion with sulfate groups by means of alkali metal ions Looking for a way that will help you cure sweaty feet?

  34. Spannend ist in dem Zusammenhang ist auch, dass auch die New York Times dieses Mal von Wikileaks ausgeschlossen wurde – die Redaktion bekam erst über eine Zusammenarbeit mit dem britischen Guardian Einblick in das Material. Die Gründe dafür liegen AFAIK im Dunkeln, über einen Zusammenhang mit dem unfreundlichen Assange-Portrait nach dem vorhergehenden Leak kann man spekulieren.

  35. (Camera) The product description for the Canon 100 HS and the 300 HS are very similar and it appears to be mostly just the wide angle and zoom. I compared the two cameras in the store and preferred the look and feel of the grey 100 HS. Only when I was testing the camera did I realize that the 100 HS does not allow you to zoom while shooting video. Another missing feature of the 100 HS is the smart auto scene detection is not active when shooting video. If you don’t care about video, save $50 on the 100 HS otherwise get the 300 HS. I exchanged mine and love the 300 HS.

  36. Ik word steeds nieuwsgieriger naar je boek. Ik weet al aardig wat van voeding af en ik was het al eens met je stelling dat (vele foute) koolhydraten de dikmakers zijn en niet de vetten. Ik heb je boek besteld en ik kan niet wachten om je methode te bestuderen.Succes met het veranderen van Nederland!Marjolein

  37. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  38. le céleri je le prends entier si les feuilles ne sont pas jaunes, ce qui est rare vu que je les choisis en fonction.Avant j'avais horreur de ça et maintenant il m'arrive de manger des tiges comme ça.Pour la pomme de terre la seule et unique façon de la consommer crue est en jus. Et de cet façon c'est par exemple un excellent rémède des brulures gastriques

  39. Yeah! You need to test yourself with immediate feedback. Get recordings off of Forvo or Rhinospike with words that are different by only one sound (beach/bitch, for example) and quiz yourself on them with Anki (“is this recording beach, or bitch?” If you do enough tests, your brain will rewire itself relatively quickly (the study I cited above taught Japanese speakers to hear Rock/Lock in 3 20-minute sessions)
