From the S.E.M. Ensemble:
The S.E.M Ensemble opens its 40th season with its annual Christmas concert at Paula Cooper Gallery (NYC)
The S.E.M. Ensemble – founded and directed by Petr Kotik – will open its 40th season at Paula Cooper Gallery’s main space in Chelsea on Tuesday, December 15 (8 pm). Highlights include two compositions by Christian Wolff – Flutist “with Percussion” (2003) and For John / Material (2007); the first public performance of Petr Kotik’s 3, 6 & 10 for John Cage (2009); and Lejaren Hiller’s rarely performed String Quartet No. 5 (In Quarter-tones) (1962). Since SEM performed its first concert at Paula Cooper Gallery on Christmas Eve 1984, it has become a tradition to include an early music piece, and the December 15 program will also feature J. S. Bach’s Sonata No. 1 in B-Minor (circa 1720). Guest soloists for the evening are Christian Wolff (performing on various percussion and wind instruments) and the innovative new music group, TimeTable Percussion.
