Peter Chin dances in his own work “Nocturne”

In Events on October 6, 2010 by danceumbrella

Tribal Crackling Wind’s Artistic Director, Peter Chin dances in his own work “Nocturne” October 17th 2010 at the new Koerner Hall with the Esprit Orchestra. This short work choreographed to the music of the same name by well-known composer Colin McPhee is redolent of the influence of Balinese dance and music, on Colin McPhee in the 1930’s and on Peter Chin in the 1990’s. For information please see the Esprit orchestra website or the Koerner Hall web site.

Genre: Classical: Orchestra

Pre-Concert Event

The vibrant rhythms of Good’s jazz-inflected music are contrasted with the luminous, gentle Balinese pulsations of McPhee’s Nocturne (enhanced with dance and film) and the atmospheric, and at times turbulent, musical dreams of Schafer. Ives’ evocation of Central Park at night transports the listener to another world. Adès covers a vast emotional spectrum using fragile, crystalline textures, lyrical melodies, and massive, highly charged cascades of sound.
