An Evening with Chaya Czernowin Featuring Performances by UC San Diego Graduate Students

UCSD CPMC Concert Hall
02/15/2012 7:00 PM


UCSD’s Department of Music presents a special concert featuring the music of Chaya Czernowin, the Walter Bigelow Rosen Professor of Music at Harvard University, and an alumnus of the department. The concert will feature her recent compositions performed by Department of Music graduate students, and Ms. Czernowin will speak about her music from the stage. The program includes Ina (recorded with UCSD faculty flutist John Fonville), Drift, and Manoalchadia. Ms. Czernowin earned her PhD (‘93) in composition at UCSD where she was mentored by composers including Roger Reynolds and Brian Ferneyhough. She has said that she considers herself to be part of a new generation composers who have lived in many locations (in her case, Israel, Germany, Austria, Japan, and now the U.S.) and who create a new “hybrid” music that brings together a range of influences. She spoke to about her work last year. The interview combines insightful conversation with video accompanied by provocative excerpts of her music.
