Liquid Music Series: Vijay Iyer & Teju Cole

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series presents Vijay Iyer, “one of his generation’s brightest jazz luminaries" (Time Out New York), WITH Teju Cole, “one of the most vibrant voices in contemporary writing” (Los Angeles Times) in a powerful new collaboration. Blind Spot combines Cole’s photography and spoken prose with Iyer’s “provocative and accessible, intellectually substantive and sensuously attractive” (Chicago Tribune) music in an investigation of humanity’s voluntary blindness to tragedy and injustice throughout history. The program opens with new work by Iyer for piano quintet with musicians from the SPCO.

Liquid Music Series: Grand Band

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series presents Grand Band, a “supergroup” (New York Times) of New York City-based pianists who have joined forces to create a powerful piano sextet. The unconventional ensemble commissions new works and arrangements for their unique instrumentation and brings a wholly distinct sonic experience to audiences. Each one an accomplished performer in their own right, the combination of their musical prowess results in mesmerizing performances that have been described as “a miracle of ensemble coordination and sonic delight” (Kalamazoo Gazette). Grand Band’s Twin Cities debut includes the world premiere of Degenerate Psalms by the “consistently inventive and surprising” (New York Times), “thoroughly original” (Wall Street Journal) composer Missy Mazzoli.
