The Orchestra of the S.E.M. Ensemble will return to the Bohemian National Hall on October 25th for their first performance since May, 2019. The orchestra will present a program of major, large-scale pieces by American composers that have been closely associated with the work that SEM and its Artistic Director Petr Kotik have done both in Europe and the U.S. On the program will be American premieres of Christian Wolff’s Invisible Terrain, Petr Kotik’s Wednesdays at RW on Spring Street and Phill Niblock’s Exploratory, Rhine version “Looking for Daniel”. There will also be performances of Five by John Cage, and From Unknown Silences by Pauline Oliveros, both of which were written for SEM. The violinist Hana Kotková and the composer and accordionist Lucie Vítková will join as soloists.
