Afterglow for Bassoon Ensemble (world premiere)
Kristin Wolfe Jensen, director
Farkhad Khudyev, conductor
This 50-minute-video project is set around Yaz Lancaster’s work dis[armed] which attempts to explore the conversation around gun violence – particularly mass shootings and the killing of unarmed Black people by police in the United States. Yaz’s work, and the program as a whole, encourages a conversation to figure out where to go from here, and that there is somewhere better to go. Supporting works include: Joseph Pereira (Mallet Quartet), Devonté Hynes (Perfectly Voiceless), and a world premiere of (Elysium Infernum) by doctoral percussion student Cy Miessler.
