Keith Moore: Time and Again(2018/2019) for two saxophonists, baritone voice, spoken voice, and live electronics with the poetry of Antonis Fostieris
A new multimedia work fuses elements of Byzantine music, jazz, and Moore’s own austere compositional style, with the writings of contemporary Greek poet Antonis Fostieris. The work is dedicated to the memory of the greatest Greek Orthodox chanter of the twentieth century, Lycourgos Angelopoulous (world première) and probes the ongoing and collaborative nature of creating meaning in art. The performance will be followed by a discussion with Antonis Fostieris and Karen Van Dyck, Kimon A. Doukas Professor of Modern Greek Literature at Columbia University and Fellow of the Institute for Ideas and Imagination.
