Join community members at a reception marking the 2012 release of Curt Cacioppo's "Laws of the Pipe" (Navona Records)
Curt Cacioppo, the Ruth Marshall Magill Professor of Music at Haverford College, derives inspiration from sources as diverse as Dante and the Mohawk poet Peter Blue Cloud. The recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome, Cacioppo has composed for symphonies and ensembles in Chicago, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Venice, Turin, and New York, and his music has is performed world wide in venues that include Carnegie Hall, Munetsugu Hall in Nagoya, the Jane Mallett Theatre in Toronto, the Kennedy Center in Washington, and the Fogg Museum at Harvard (in tandem with a show by American Indian artist Dan Namingha).
"Laws of the Pipe" is "a collection of musical elegies and celebrations" that opens with "Wolf," a work inspired by Peter Blue Cloud's poetry performed by soprano Janice Fiore, cellist David Geber, and Cacioppo on piano; "Kinaalda," performed by the Borromeo String Quartet, creates a seasonal cycle that evokes the transformative power of Changing Woman, a figure central to Navaho culture and ritual; the final work, "Scenes from Indian Country," is performed by The Chamber Orchestra of Bryn Mawr" under the direction of Heidi Jacobs.
