THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED IN A PREVIOUS SEASON!
Rooted in Mayan thought, tinged with Indian rhythms, and shaped by studies in London, Hilda Paredes’ music seems to exist outside time and place, evoking ancient South American civilization with modern European language. Widely recognized as the leading Mexican composer of her generation, Paredes has won a number of prestigious fellowships and commissions and her music is increasingly performed throughout Europe, her adopted home, as well as in her native Mexico. This program pairs her “concerto for ensemble” with a new piece commissioned by Miller for Ensemble Signal.
Featuring an onstage discussion with Hilda Paredes and Lauren Radnofsky.
