Ketty Nez: Hearing Different Spaces: Compositions Inspired by Bartók’s Fieldwork

Bartók terem, 2021. november 11. csütörtök, 10 óra


American composer and pianist Ketty Nez, Associate Professor of Music, Composition and Music Theory at Boston University College of Fine Arts, will present her compositional output inspired by folk musical sources from Central Europe and the Balkans, including music from various cultures collected by Béla Bartók as part of his ethnographic research. She combines freely composed music with gestures and rhythms from folk melodies, while the textures in the accompaniment respond to the needs of the solo performer, featured as “folk singer.” Among her works discussed are chamber music pieces featured on her latest CD double images (double images, sea-changes, 5 moments, the moon returns), her first work to use folk music sources Postcards from the 1930's, and her folk chamber opera The Fiddler and the Old Woman of Rumelia. This presentation will also include Ketty’s piano performance with violinist Máté Vizeli as collaborator.
