'Seven Limbs' By Douglas J. Cuomo

Featuring guitarist Nels Cline (Wilco) & the Grammy-nominated Aizuri Quartet

Seven Limbs is a newly composed, virtuosic tour de force for string quartet and guitar by composer Douglas J. Cuomo, shot through with melodic beauty and rhythmic urgency, celebration and serenity, solemnity, and unbridled joy. Juxtaposing the wildly inventive guitar playing of Nels Cline - lead guitar for the acclaimed indie band Wilco - with the Aizuri Quartet’s classically-based, forward-thinking musical outlook, Seven Limbs sets these five expert musicians in a landscape that is slightly unfamiliar - where the ground under their feet is always shifting in unexpected ways.Read more

Women's contribution to the history of the Bolero

Bésame Mucho is a bolero recital, which takes the audience to the emotive and passionate world of women. Venezuelan singer Inés María Bravo, under the direction of William Sigismondi, performs a beautiful repertoire, which honors and highlights the musical work of extraordinary Latin American females of the 20th Century.

It showcases the outstanding contribution of women in the development of the bolero as a benchmark for Latin American popular music. The melodic discourse explores the diversity of the bolero through the rhythmic variations made by Caribbean countries, Mexico, and Argentina.Read more
