IU Jacobs School of Music: “ORIENT” — 17 October 2010, 7pm, Recital Hall

The next couple of weekends are significant for Orthodox music getting its due on the IU campus, it seems. This weekend is the Arvo Pärt Jubilee, next Saturday is the Symposium, and then next Sunday at 7pm, the JSoM’s Symphonic Choir is presenting a concert of music by predominantly Orthodox composers. Here’s the program:

Христос воскресе

Pavel Chesnokov (1877-1944)
Спасение соделал

Hilarion Alfeyev (b. 1966)
Богородице Дево

Victor Kalinnikov(1870-1927)
Ныне отпущаеши

Dmitry Bortniansky (1751-1825)
Херувимская песнь 7

Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943)
Богородице Дево
From Всенощное бдение, Op. 37

Возлюблю тебя Господи

Arvo Pärt (b. 1935)

Cyrillus Kreek (1889-1962)
Õnnis on inimene

Henryk Mikołaj Górecki (b. 1933)
Totus Tuus

Robin Freeman
Benjamin Gulick
Juan Hernandez
Juan Carlos Zamudio

The Rev. Deacon Evan Freeman

Robin and Dn. Evan are friends and fellow All Saints-ers, incidentally.

Very much recommended, especially since they’re including some of Met. Hilarion’s music. As the poster notes, it is free and open to the public. If you’re around, give this a listen. If you’re on Facebook, RSVP to the event here.


IU Jacobs School of Music: “Arvo Pärt: A Jubilee,” 9-10 October 2010

I was just informed that the weekend before the Symposium, the Jacobs School of Music and the Estonian Studies Program of the Department of Central Eurasian Studies, with additional support from the Russian and East European Institute as well as the Estonian Embassy in Washington, D. C. and the Estonian Institute in Tallinn, Estonia, will be hosting a weekend of events focusing on Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Here’s the schedule of events:

Saturday, October 9, 4pm

“Arvo Pärt: Icon of an Age”
Sunday, October 10, 12-2pm
A lecture by Dr. Jeffers Engelhardt, Assistant Professor, Anthropology of Music, Department of Music, Amherst College

More information can be found here.
I’m definitely interested in hearing Dr. Engelhardt’s talk; about a year and a half ago he published a very thoughtful study of the musical practice at the non-MP Orthodox cathedral in Tallinn, Estonia, and I discussed that study a bit here. The concert, of course, should be splendid. Highly recommended on all counts.
