Faculty Recital: Eden MacAdam-Somer
Boston, Massachusetts
Tuesday, 13 March 2018 - 7:30 PM
New England Conservatory’s (NEC) internationally renowned Contemporary
Improvisation (CI) Department presents CoChair, alumna Eden MacAdam-Somer, in a faculty recital, with CI colleagues Anthony Coleman and Bert Seager, alumna Sarah Bob on piano, and, for the first time on the Jordan Hall Stage, members of Hartford-based musical diplomacy ensemble Cuatro Puntos, performing the Boston premier of MacAdam-Somer’s The Shooting Gallery.

The Shooting Gallery, a new work for string quartet by CI Co-Chair Eden MacAdam-Somer, was commissioned by Cuatro Puntos, a non-profit dedicated to international dialogue and outreach through music. Based on a series of lithographs by Czech surrealist Toyen, created in response to the Nazi takeover of Prague, MacAdam-Somer’s musical composition deals with violence in today’s world as seen through the eyes of children. MacAdam-Somer will also be joined on her program by pianists Anthony Coleman (with a series of new pieces based on songs by George Jones and Loretta Lynn), Bert Seager (featuring their new duo collaboration on original works and
jazz standards) and Sarah Bob (performing the Debussy Sonata for Violin and Piano).
