Interpretations: Roscoe Mitchell

Thursday, October 28, 2021. 8:00 pm

Roscoe Mitchell returns to Interpretations for a full evening of chamber works and improvisations. The program will include Sunrise on an Ice Moon for solo vibraphone, performed by Anna Wray; Cutouts for Woodwind Quintet performed by Wavefield Ensemble: Roberta Michel (flute), Katie Scheele (oboe), Eric Umble (clarinet), Sara Schoenbeck (bassoon) and John Gattis (french horn), a duet between Mitchell and percussionist Tani Tabbal, and a solo with video accompaniment by Mitchell.

Please note: this was an in-person-only performance and was not live streamed. However, the recording of the performance has now been added to Roulette’s free online archive.

The Interpretations series, now in its 31st season, is a New York-based concert series focusing on the relationship between contemporary composers and their interpreters. Sometimes the interpreters are the composers themselves; more often, the series features performers who specialize in the interpretation of new music. Since its inception in 1989, Interpretations has featured leading figures in contemporary music and multimedia, including Muhal Richard Abrams, Robert Ashley, Anthony Braxton, Thomas Buckner, FLUX Quartet, Joseph Kubera, Annea Lockwood, and Alvin Lucier, Roscoe Mitchell, Phill Niblock, Pauline Oliveros, Ursula Oppens, and Morton Subotnick.

This performance is a coproduction between Roulette and Interpretations.
