David Del Tredici
New York, NY (March 1, 2011) —
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will celebrate Yaddo composer David Del Tredici on March 27 and 28 with a program featuring the premiere performance of choreographer Lynn Taylor-Corbett's new work set to Del Tredici's Grosse Tarantella.
The "Works and Process at the Guggenheim" series commissioned Taylor-Corbett to create a new piece for "Celebrating David Del Tredici," which also will include a performance of Del Tredici's Four Heartfelt Anthems by The Young People's Chorus of New York City, directed by Francisco J. Nunez, and with Del Tredici at the piano. Following the concert, Del Tredici and Taylor-Corbett will participate in a moderated discussion. Grosse Tarantella is from Del Tredici's 2003 String Quartet No. 1, commissioned for the DaPonte String Quartet.
The "Works and Process at the Guggenheim" performing arts series began in 1984 and is dedicated to championing new works and bringing acclaimed artists into an intimate setting, offering unprecedented access for the audience to leading creators and performers. Programs are presented in the Guggenheim's Frank Lloyd Wright–designed 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. Del Tredici first came to Yaddo as a guest artist in 1970 and has returned several times. He is a Member of The Corporation of Yaddo.
Tickets for "Celebrating David Del Tredici" are $30, $25, and $10. For more information, click here.
