Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- “Mr. Rouse’s music and staging are rich in original touches…” –<em>New York Times</em>
<p>Experience the movies like never before…Mikel Rouse returns with The End of Cinematics, a “live music and video installation,” inspired by two Susan Sontag essays about film.
The End Of Cinematics pushes the boundaries of art, film, music, and ideas. Our familiarity with the movie-going experience makes all the elements of this production recognizable: the concession stand, the trailers for upcoming releases, the reminders to turn off cell phone, the sense of anticipation that the featured film is about to begin once you see the animated movie company logos and you hear the opening notes of the sound score. But then The End Of Cinematics invites you to reflect on your typical movie house experience—the ways in which music, video, and dialogue are wedded together—through deconstruction of narrative musical content. In the words of Susan Sontag, this is “a cinema that eats cinema.”</p> <p>The End of Cinematics is the third part of an “opera verité” trilogy consisting of Failing Kansas and the critically-acclaimed “talk show” opera Dennis Cleveland, both presented by the Philharmonic Society. </p>
