This program features internationally acclaimed guitarist Daniel Lippel, joining c)i in a program that crosses boundaries, continents, and  centuries.

Two works written for c)i will be premiered, one by Steven Ricks (Reconstructing the Lost Improvisations of Aldo Pilestri (1683 – 1727))  and one by Koussevitsky-prizewinning Argentinian composer Diego Tedesco.  The other works similarly sit on the skein of the new and the old, the familiar and the Unbedingte.  Lippel will perform Kyle Bartlett’s Aphorisms, a polychromatic solo work built around fragments from the writings of philosophers long dead and still living. Douglas Boyce’s Floruit Egregiis (3/24) connects a modern and personal catastrophism with an ‘overflowing abundance’ of Franco-Flemish polyphony, while his sails knife-bright in a seasonal wind (4/23) meditates on temporality, finitude, and continuity, an atomized and distilled study of texture, color and rhythm. Anthony Green’s Callide-oscope II maps a super-abundance of color and texture, but through restraint rather than excess.  Nomi Epstein’s all are above us moves us to the abstract, to works with permeable boundaries, intersections of composition, improvisation, and meditation.
