    Wigmore Hall Announces First Season of Brad Mehldau–Curated Concerts
    Roberto Masotti

    Wigmore Hall, the venerated London venue, has announced the first group of concerts that Brad Mehldau has programmed as artistic director of an annual, two-season jazz series there during the 2009–10 and the 2010–11 seasons.

    Mehldau will appear in at least two of the annual concerts he will oversee at the venue, continuing the Wigmore Hall tradition of hosting a small number of annual acoustic jazz events each year. Six events have already been scheduled for the 2009–10 season and are available for purchase at wigmore-hall.org.uk: two solo events on April 9, 2009, and June 4, 2010; a duo concert with label mate Joshua Redman on October 15, 2009; a Brad Mehldau Trio concert the following night; and a recital with mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, with whom he will premiere Mehldau's Love Songs tomorrow night at Carnegie Hall in New York.

    "Brad Mehldau is steeped in the classical music tradition and is one of the most fluid and inventive musicians that I have ever encountered," says the Hall's director, John Gilhooly. "We are very pleased and excited to welcome him to Wigmore Hall."

    "It's a real honor to be given the opportunity to program events at Wigmore Hall," says Brad, who first performed there in 2004. "London audiences are among the most well informed and adventurous as I have seen anywhere, so it will be a distinct pleasure to curate these programs. I hope that my artistic input will provide the London public with something illuminating."

    Composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Mass for the Endangered, is out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. A video for “Alleluia” from the Mass, the third video for the project made by Deborah Johnson / CandyStations, can be seen here. Snider’s Mass, with a libretto by poet/writer Nathaniel Bellows, is a celebration of, and an elegy for, the natural world—animals, plants, insects, the planet itself—an appeal for greater awareness, urgency, and action. Originally commissioned by Trinity Church Wall Street, this recording features the English vocal ensemble Gallicantus conducted by Gabriel Crouch.

    Tristan Perich’s Drift Multiply, for 50 violins and 50-channel 1-bit electronics, will be released November 13, 2020, on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, and is available to preorder now. The piece, Perich’s largest work to date, is conducted by Douglas Perkins. Scored as one hundred individual lines of music, the piece blends violins and speakers into a cascading tapestry of tone, harmony, and noise. The violins perform from sheet music, while the speakers are each connected to custom-built circuit boards programmed to output 1-bit audio, the most basic digital waveforms made of just ones and zeroes.
