Neo Camerata brings the vibrant and emotionally stirring new classical music of composer Mark Landson to life in a program that features his works for violin, cello and piano. Described as “Stravinsky at his most lyrical”, Landson’s music combines first class classical composition technique with modern pop harmonies, driving rhythms and infectious melodies to take the listener on a continuous journey of emotion.
 
Formed in 2003, Neo Camerata has performed Landson’s music at the Cannes Film Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and in concerts with symphony orchestras and pop singers. Neo Camerata’s album of Landson’s compositions, “Travels”, is being re-released in January 2019 and will be available in a special package at the performance.
 
"A legitimate alternative voice to the often alienating landscape of contemporary classical music composition.”

PROGRAM

“Moments In Memory” (version for Violin, Cello and Piano 2018): Soaring melodies dominate the 3 scenes of this work, derived from inspirational moments that prompted the composer to notate melodies at the time. (3 movements-24 minutes)
 
“Le Mozart Noir” Suite (2018): Concert suite from a ballet, premiered in 2016. It shows scenes from the life of Joseph Boulogne, Le Chevalier de St George, who was known as The Black Mozart. Original ballet was a recipient of Donna Wilhelm Family New Works Fund. (15 minutes)
 
“Vokante Heroa” (2001) Based on a tale of the universal tragic hero. From the opening defiant statement through moments of emotional introspection and inevitable savage death, transformative heavenly ascension and the fury of those left behind, the work is the ultimate combination of beauty and power.
