Weill Recital Hall
Decoda by Caroline Bittencourt
Wit, whimsy, and some remarkable musicianship make this eclectic program by Decoda—alumni of Ensemble Connect—a standout. Missy Mazzoli’s pulsing energy, William Bolcolm’s ragtime syncopations, and Steven Mackey’s reinvention of the standard ensemble set the table for music by Rameau and Martinů. The latter’s jazz-inflected score about the lives of kitchen utensils uses tango, 1920s Charleston, and other popular tunes to create a dizzying and delightful confection.
RAMEAU Selections from Dardanus, Les boréades, and Les fêtes d'Hébé (arr. Brad Balliett)
MARTINŮ La revue de cuisine
