  • Guest/Faculty Recital: Jeff Zeigler , Kronos Quartet cellist with Nicola Melville, piano
    • Brilliant Kronos Quartet cellist, Jeffrey Zeigler, is joined by Carleton faculty pianist, Nicola Melville, in a program of profound and appealing contemporary music. Alfred Schnittke’s intense masterwork, Sonata for Cello and Piano, is paired with Judd Greenstein’s rock-inspired work of the same title; the sparse transcendence of Arvo Pärt is juxtaposed with an exuberant pop-inspired piece by Doug Opel (world premiere) and the lush sonorities of Paola Prestini’s “Cut him out in little stars…” In addition to receiving the 2011 Avery Fisher Prize, the Kronos Quartet was recently awarded Sweden’s prestigious Polar Music Award in recognition of their broad approach to programming, often incorporating avant-garde rock and music from a variety of sources worldwide. This recital offers selections that echo this timely and thrilling aesthetic.
