a pe ri od ic (34): Eliza Brown’s Masque-Rondeau- world premiere

June 21, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

a pe ri od ic will give the world premiere of Chicago composer Eliza Brown‘s 42-minute Masque-Rondeau, to be performed ‘DURING THE HOUR IN WHICH THE SUN SETS,” as part of Make Music Chicago in the beautiful Buchanan Chapel of Fourth Presbyterian Church.

Masque-Rondeau is a work for 10-26 performers (piano plus open instrumentation) in which groups of performers gradually spread out across the room, shifting, re-organizing, dispersing, while filling the space with long swells. The pianist acts as a conductor through a series of musical cues, triggering the different movements and changing roles of the other players. The performers play slow, overlapping chords, at times in concord with other groups and at others creating piquant clashes deliberately reminiscent of 17th-century Restoration music.
