Chris Grymes Open G Series

Jeremy Gill

6pm doors • 7pm show


Adventurous clarinettist and new music aficionado Chris Grymes brings his Open G podcast and performance series to National Sawdust in a continuing exploration of the new avenues that digital technologies are opening up for creating and sharing high-caliber music.This installment features the achingly beautiful music of Jeremy Gill, and includes the NYC premieres of Whitman Portrait (honoring the bicentennial of Walt Whitman’s birth) and Duo for Violin and Piano, and the world premiere of Lascia fare mi, composed in reaction to Bernardo Bertolucci’s infamous 1973 film Last Tango in Paris.

Jeremy Gill is a composer and pianist with a modern voice and a classical sensibility. Gill’s music is has been hailed as “vividly colored” (New York Times) and “exhilarating” (Philadelphia Inquirer), and the works on this program will be performed by the very players that Gill originally wrote for. Virtuosic technique meets exquisite composition in this breathtaking evening of extraordinary music.
