Late Night at National Sawdust Aims to Bring Back Live Radio

Late Night at National Sawdust is a new quarterly concert series of music from living composers around the world performed live on Relevant Tones, the world's only weekly syndicated radio program dedicated to contemporary classical music, hosted by Seth Boustead.

The broadcast is preceded by the Discovery Series, in which musicians give prepared readings of two or three works chosen from an international call for scores. The call for scores was answered by over 500 composers from 30 different countries. Several of the pieces chosen to be read will also be chosen for future broadcast.

Relevant Tones is heard in 55 cities around the U.S. and is also available as a podcast. These concerts are a collaboration between Access Contemporary Music and Open G Records.

Classical Music Which Comes Alive for Audiences of All Backgrounds:
Broken Hearts - A Concert for Piano Quartet and Actor

The Elsewhere Ensemble performs in collaboration with organizations helping people in need, as a way of connecting art and artists with the larger society in which we live. The ensemble gave a concert at the W83 Ministry Center in New York on December 14, 2016 entitled "Broken Hearts – A Concert for Piano Quartet and Actor." The ensemble seeks to develop performances which create a more personal musical experience: "words which sing, notes that speak," a response to the question, "what is the role of 'classical' music today and how can we create concerts which overcome the generally predictable form... concerts which come alive for audiences of all backgrounds?"

The concert began with "Letter to Brahms." A man in the audience stands up and asks if anyone else ever gets bored at concerts. "It's all right if you do," he continues, "my grandmother used to tell me that if you didn't give yourself permission to be yourself, to dislike, you will never be touched, either." Little by little, he shares his story about his lifelong love-hate relationship with the slow movement of the Brahms Piano Quartet in G minor. "Sometimes, a piece follows you and haunts you your entire life." The narrative, which evokes the life of Brahms intermingled with his own struggles in music, culminates in a performance of the Brahms Piano Quartet.

"The Happy Prince" followed – an original work by composer Colin Pip Dixon for piano quartet and narrator based on the Oscar Wilde tale of the same name. Words and music intertwine and accompany each other in a lyrical and contemporary piece which speaks of profound and serious subjects with the magical language of a children's tale. On the outside, it is the story of a small swallow and a golden statue. Below the surface, it speaks of the true nature of happiness and opening one's eyes to the suffering of others. The Elsewhere Ensemble has already performed "The Happy Prince" in three different countries: in France, Lebanon and most recently the Festival Max Van Der Linden in Belgium (March 18, 2017).
