Fierce Beauty Part I

Fierce Beauty Part IVirtuoso pianist Steven Vanhauwaert (“monster technique” Los Angeles Times) opens the concert. Featuring the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble including founder “living legend” Kahil El'Zabar and saxophonist David Murray as they premiere an original arrangement of the iconic A Love Supreme suite in four movements by John Coltrane.

Arnold Schoenberg – Five Piano Pieces, Op. 23
Pierre Boulez – 12 Notations
Leo Ornstein – Suicide in an Airplane
John Coltrane – A Love Supreme

Schoenberg’s Five Piano Pieces, Op. 23, which marks the crystallization of his twelve-tone technique is the launchpad. Other groundbreaking piano methods are heard in Leo Ornstein’s Suicide in an Airplane, distinctive for its tone clusters. Pierre Boulez’s fascinating 12 Notations uses the number 12 as a self-imposed structure with a 12-note row forming the basis of 12 solo piano pieces, each just 12 bars long. The indirect passing of the Schoenberg baton is heard in A Love Supreme, a progressive jazz masterpiece by the famed innovator John Coltrane, whose groundbreaking style is rooted in Schoenberg’s techniques, gleaned from his teacher Dennis Sandole, a Schoenberg student. Coltrane also studied with Ornstein as a teenager in Philadelphia.
