HOTEL ELEFANT: GREAT MUSIC DEBUT
Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm
The Great Music at St. Bart’s Series debut of the contemporary music ensemble Hotel Elefant, lauded by Time Out New York as “megatalented” and “one of New York’s fastest rising new-music outfits.” Named for the scene of a chance meeting in Austria between Strauss, Mahler, Puccini, and Schoenberg in 1906, Hotel Elefant has achieved renown for celebrating the dynamism and diversity of the contemporary music landscape, and has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Bang on a Can Marathon.
Hotel Elefant’s Great Music program juxtaposes music by Kaija Saariaho (Nocturne, Oi kuu) with the New York City premières of new works by Hotel Elefant composers Hannis Brown, Patrick Castillo, Jascha Narveson, Leaha Maria Villarreal, and Kirsten Volness.
