Ecstatic Europe: Missy Mazzoli & Kelly Moran in Bern

Thursday, March 5, 20208:00pm

Two composing worlds collide in an intimate evening that sees solo sets from both artists, an appearance from guest violinist, Etienne Abelin, and culminates in the performance of their new collaborative piece.

Always experimental and blending a mix of genres, Kelly Moran works the piano into a synth soundscape, in an array of stylistic influences: dazzling inflections of jazz and dream pop, neoclassical and black metal, darkness and light.

Missy Mazzoli, currently Mead Composer-in-Residence at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, is consistently inventive and surprising. Mazzoli creates chamber, orchestral and operatic work and is one of the first two women to receive a commission from the Metropolitan Opera House.
