The Ithaca New Music Collective performs 4 times a year in venues around Ithaca. A sample program includes classics of the contemporary repetoire in combination with music from living composers from the local community. Past performances included works by Luciano Berio (Sequenza 1), Steve Reich (Clapping Music), local composers Avner Finberg (Ascensions Solo Violin) and Josh Oxford (Love for Gloria). In this concert, however, we will present a simple hour long piece which is Stravinsky’s Historie du Soldat (A Soldier’s Tale). The text, a tale of a soldier who sells his fiddle to the devil in return for worldly riches, will be narrated during the performance.
