The Ensemble of the Lucerne Festival Alumni will perform Zosha's Four Miniatures for Woodwind Quintet.
"A way to make classical music straightforward: When the workday is over but the evening has not quite begun – there’s time for music then. More exactly: for 40 minutes of music. Always at 18.20, before the “big event” symphony concerts, selected Festival artists are presented in the 40min series. Admission is free, there’s no dress code, and prior knowledge is unnecessary. For the artists not only make music but also take on the role of host and talk about what they’re playing and why they play it the way they do."
In an "Audience Encounter" program at Banff 2018, the JACK quartet is in conversation with Zosha. Five artists reflect on what they have learned from Haydn and Janáček.
Franz Joseph Haydn: String Quartet, Op. 33, No. 1 in B minor
Leos Janáček: The Kreutzer Sonata
Zosha Di Castri: String Quartet No. 1
Zosha has been invited to join Music From Japan (MFJ), in association with Music Critics Association of North America (MCANA), to bring MCANA Institute to Japan (Tokyo and Fukushima City) in July 2018.
The Tokyo Sinfonietta will be performing Zosha's works, alongside others, at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Recital Hall on July 7 along with MFJ commissioned work by Kenji Sakai and Tokuhide Niimi.
The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) will perform Zosha's Four Miniatures for Woodwind Quintet at the first Summer Music Open Studios: Ensemble Evolution at the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity. The program also includes composer encounters with Claire Chase, Steven Schick, faculty composers and improvisers on the subject of "Beyond Repertoire: Making Music Outside of Conventional Habits."
Zosha's Strange Matter will be featured at the 2018 Spoleto Festival in Charleston, S.C. in a program titled, "Music in Time | An Elemental Thing." Zosha's music is played alongside Annea Lockwood’s Water and Memory, while works by Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Jennifer Walshe underscore how, in its analog and digital manifestations, music is a living reflection of what it means to be human in 2018.
The music of innovative young composer Zosha Di Castri extends beyond purely concert music, with electronic projects, sound art, and collaborations in video and dance. For this program, Di Castri shares an interactive preview of a work in progress, performed by the one of the world’s most accomplished and adventurous new music ensembles, ICE. Join International Contemporary Ensembles’ radical archiving experiment, presented by the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and appreciate the composition process like never before.
