Forough Farrokhzad, Carnegie Hall


Kirk Noreen Ensemble Sospeso
(212) 663-1675

NEW YORK, November 19, 2000 ­ The New York-based Ensemble Sospeso, a chamber orchestra specializing in contemporary music, will be presenting three world premieres on their December 12, 2000, 8:00 PM concert at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.

The concert of predominately vocal works features soprano Lucy Shelton in performance of three works: the world premiere of Bernard Rands Memo 7 for solo voice on text by Emily Dickinson, Ensemble Sospeso Co-Director Joshua Cody's epic La rose des langues on text by French poet Michel Deguy also featuring baritone Andre Solomon Glover and Elliott Carter's most recent vocal work, Tempo e tempi.

The two other premieres include Memo 8 for solo oboe, by Mr. Rands performed by oboist Jacqueline LeClair and the world premiere of The wind will carry us by Ensemble Sospeso Co-Director Kirk Noreen on a text by Forugh Farrokhzad, perhaps Iran's greatest modern woman poet.

Iranian born soprano Haleh Abghari will be singing Mr. Noreen's work in Persian.

The Ensemble Sospeso, a young chamber orchestra that performs modern music, was originally formed in Seattle in 1995 by composers Kirk Noreen and Joshua Cody.

It has been based in New York since 1998 and has performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Miller Theater at Columbia University and Florence Gould Hall.

The Ensemble Sospeso's primary objective is to bring contemporary classical music to new and diverse audiences through collaborations with poets, painters, sculptors, dancers and other artists. Most recently, Sospeso has performed the works of Dutch composer Louis Andriessen at the Miller Theatre at Columbia University to great acclaim. Future performances include a concert of music by Finnish composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen conducted by Mr. Salonen on December 17, 2000 at Weill Recital Hall.

Tickets for the event may be purchase through Carnegie Charge at (212) 247-7800.
