Byrne:Kozar:Duo – nienteForte

Celebrate nienteForte’s 10th season with our premiere concert at Sidebar NOLA: Byrne:Kozar:Duo!

Created by New York City based soprano Corrine Byrne and trumpeter Andy Kozar, the Byrne:Kozar:Duo have been said to create ‘an arresting symbiosis in their melding of voice and trumpet timbres’ (Textura) and that the ‘trumpet and voice seem to take on one another’s qualities’ (Bandcamp Daily).

As individuals, Corrine has been called a ‘celebrated singer’ (Broadway World) and ‘a rising star’ (Arts Westchester) while Andy has been called a ‘star soloist’ (TimeOutNY) and ‘polished and dynamic, with very impressive playing’ (Baltimore Sun). Combining their strengths as performers and interpreters of both early and modern music, the Byrne:Kozar:Duo has commissioned new works by composers including Reiko Futing, Paula Matthusen, David Smooke, Scott Worthington and Scott Wollschleger. As recording artists, they can be heard on a recent release of the music of Scott Wollshleger on New Focus Recordings which was named a Notable Recording of 2017 in The New Yorker. Recent appearances include performances at the Boston Early Music Festival, Lake George Music Festival, Divergent Studio at the Longy School of Music, nienteForte in New Orleans, and New Music Miami.

Versipel New Music Presents Giacomo Baldelli, Contemporary Guitar

Versipel New Music is excited to welcome New York City-based guitarist Giacomo Baldelli to open our sixth season on October 15th at Hotel Peter and Paul.

Critically noted as “one of the most complete performers of the new generation”, Baldelli is focused on exploring works of the 20th century, but also on developing a new 21st century repertoire for guitar. Most recently, he has been interested in expanding the contemporary repertoire for electric guitar.

Giacomo Baldelli will perform a concert of modern music for electric guitar, including performances of works by some of today’s leading voices in contemporary music such as French composer Tristain Murail and U.S. composer Eve Beglerian.
