New Sounds Live: New Songs

New Sounds Live Webcast from Merkin Concert Hall Examines Today's Art Song

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

On Thursday, May 20 at 7:30 p.m., Q2 presents a live webcast of New Songs with Elizabeth & the Catapult, Ed Pastorini and Gabriel Kahane. The concert at Merkin Concert Hall will be hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer and will explore how the art song is being reshaped by rock, jazz and minimalism. It's the final installment of New Sounds Live's 23rd season.

Elizabeth & the Catapult, a threesome regarded for their unique blend of pop playfulness and grown-up introspection, perform a newly commissioned work along with other favorites. Eclectic troubador Gabriel Kahane and singer/pianist Ed Pastorini will also share their unique take on what the art song of the 21st century ressembles.

Full Performances from Ed Pastorini, Gabriel Kahane and Elizabeth & the Catapult:

Pianist Ed Pastorini performing Old Tool Shed, All Fall Down, Mechanical Chair, Tsunami, and Carmelite.

Singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane with multi-instrumentalist Rob Moose performing Icebox, North Adams, Merritt Parkway, Neurotic & Lonely, Durrants, LA, Where Are The Arms?.
