Broken Rivers
New Work for Vicki Ray, Alyssa Park, and Tim Loo
June 03, 2017

Chamber music by Eve Beglarian, Nick Norton, Caroline L. Miller, Julia Wolfe, Dante De Silva, Thomas Kotcheff, Michael Gilbertson, and Anton Svetlicnhy, featuring violinist Alyssa Park, cellist Timothy Loo, and pianist Vicki Ray, with readings by actor Ray Ford.

Join Synchromy before the show for a discussion about the process of programming new music concerts in Los Angeles with some of the composers and performers on tonight’s program. Talk begins at 7:15pm. The performance begins at 8pm.

Synchromy returns to Boston Court to present “Broken Rivers,” an evening of chamber music by Eve Beglarian, Nick Norton, Caroline L. Miller, Julia Wolfe, Dante De Silva, Thomas Kotcheff, Michael Gilbertson, and Anton Svetlicnhy, featuring violinist Alyssa Park, cellist Timothy Loo, and pianist Vicki Ray. Actor Ray Ford will guide the audience through the program, presenting readings of poetry and excerpts from short stories associated with each piece.

The evening marks Synchromy and Music @ Boston Court’s third consecutive year of collaboration, and will begin with Synchromy Artistic Director Nick Norton’s Broken River Variations—a piece inspired by the Mississippi River and “all of the places where the current has bent the river so far that slices of it have broken off to form narrow lakes.” The program will also feature trios and solos by Eve Beglarian, Caroline L. Miller, Julia Wolfe, and Dante De Silva, as well as gone into night are all the eyes, a work by another of Synchromy’s artistic directors, Thomas Kotcheff.

To fill the final slot on the program, Synchromy issued a call-for-scores last fall and received a record 240 entries from across the globe. In response to the overwhelming number of submissions, the performers requested that two finalists be selected rather than one. Synchromy ultimately decided on two very different and captivating scores: Michael Gilbertson’s Fold by Fold and Anton Svetlicnhy’s The Atrocity Exhibition.

  • Nick Norton — Broken River Variations
