FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 8:00 PM Composer Portrait: Sebastian Currier, composer Christopher Taylor, piano Argento Chamber Ensemble Michel Galante, conductor Night Time (1998) Bodymusic (2009) (world premiere, Miller Theatre commission) Piano Concerto (2006 Miller Theatre commission) This performance is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission. Onstage discussion with Sebastian Currier and John Schaefer Grawemeyer-award winning composer Sebastian Currier (b. 1959) creates music that is "lyrical, colorful, firmly rooted in tradition, but absolutely new," says The Washington Post. His ability to evoke an array of emotions and instrumental colors are his stylistic trademarks. This Portrait includes a world premiere Miller Theatre commission, along with a performance of a 2006 Miller commission played by the brilliant pianist Christopher Taylor.
