ZOFO Piano Four Hands
Scripps College Department of Music presents
The Bessie Bartlett Frankel Chamber Music Concert
Featuring ZOFO of San Francisco performing “Echoes of Gamelan” – a concert of works involving Indonesian music by composers from past to present day.
Echoes of Gamelan explores the influence of gamelan music on western composers, as well as how our music perception changes depending on the context. Colin McPhee’s transcriptions of Balinese ceremonial music are interwoven with pieces by Debussy, Riley, and Baumbusch. This juxtaposition prompts us to listen to each piece from outside the western tradition and to experience compositional time differently. Debussy heard gamelan music for the first time at the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris. This exposure made a huge impact on his development and by extension on many composers to come. http://www.arielartists.com/artists/zofo
Music by Leopold Godowsky, Claude Debussy, Gustav Holst, Brian Baumbusch, Ni Nyoman Srayamurtikanti and ceremonial Balinese music.
