Unison Media and The Green-Wood Historic Fund are presenting an all-new series of classical music concerts titled The Angel’s Share, to be performed in Green-Wood’s Catacombs. The season will run from June 2018 through October 2018.
The JACK Quartet were called “superheroes of the new music world” by The Boston Globe, and there could be no more apt description for this endlessly adventurous ensemble. They’ve played pieces completely in the dark, performed on a raft in the middle of a lake, and more. For The Angel’s Share, they will play an extraordinary program that follows a musical thread from medieval plainsong through to the present day, drawing sonic similarities from wildly divergent works and echoing the timelessness of the space surrounding them.
The Program: Solage: Fumeux Fume Par Fumée; Rodericus: Angelorum Psalat arr. Christopher Otto; Thomas Morley: Cristes Crosse; Chaya Czernowin: String Quartet; Brian Ferneyhough: Dum Transisset; Marc Sabat: Jean-Phillipe Rameau
The Performers: Christopher Otto, violin; Austin Wulliman, violin; John Pickford Richards, viola; Jay Campbell, cello
