Random Access Music Concerts
Random Access Music (RAM), under the Artistic Direction of Thomas Piercy, presents a concert in NYC on October 16 with new music from RAM composers including a short concert prelude for clarinet, cello, and piano from Masatora Goya to open the concert, a duo for cello and piano from Seth Boustead, a trio for clarinet, cello, and piano from Gilbert Galindo, and a world premiere for clarinet, cello, and piano from RAM’s newest member, Beata Moon.
Guest composers’ music includes world premieres from British composer Jake Adams with his pieces skillfully combining Western classical instruments with Japanese heritage instruments, and quintets from Tania Leon and Ed Bland – two virtuosic quintets from the same year (1992) inhabiting exciting sound worlds quite different from each other.
These works will be performed by the critically acclaimed members of the RAM Players Lish Lindsey, ryuteki; Thomas Piercy, clarinet/hichiriki; Masayo Ishigure, koto; Daniel Hass, cello, and Tengku Irfan, piano.
This program is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
