Francis Alys

Bolero (Shoe Shine Blues) and Politics of Rehearsal
September 28 – December 14, 2008

 

Sunday, November 16, 2008, 8:00 pm

Concert

Frances-Marie Uitti (cello)

Location: Bond Chapel, 1025 E. 58th St.
Admission: free
 

The Society is excited to host Uitti, who has performed definitive interpretations of works by some of the late 20th Century?s greatest composers, including Kurtag, Scelsi and Nono. In 1975, she developed a double-bow technique that transformed her cello into a truly polyphonic instrument capable of sustained chordal and intricate multivoiced writing. With any luck, her custom, 12 gauge, stringless, electronic cello will be completed and we can exploit her eagerness to show it off.

This concert will take place in Bond Chapel, 1025 E. 58th St. (One building east of Cobb Hall on the main quadrangle of the University). FREE
