Tamar Muskal presents the long-awaited world premiere of her warmly diverse work for a rapper/beatbox artist, tabla player, string quintet and treble chorus.

In Muskal’s words, “We live in a very challenging time — a time of war, sickness, climate disasters, and economic difficulties. One Earth … calls all people to positive action, to love, to beauty, and to anything that protects the planet and humanity.

“The piece is rich in sonorities, a fusion of different musical worlds, and contrasts between energetic rhythms, lyrical melodies and powerful rapping.”

The program also includes Schubert’s heavenly String Quintet in C Major—an early 19th Century call to humanity, beauty and truth. Of Muskal’s music, the Chicago Tribune has written: “The ripples and shimmers that filled Muskal’s post-minimalist score were as evanescent as swirling, digitized visuals— dissolving into one another with kaleidoscopic beauty…high-tech music theater at its most inventive and fascinating.”

The Borromeo String Quartet will perform with Avirodh Sharma on tabla, beatbox artist Christylez Bacon, conductor Tian Hui Ng, choral director Rachel Feldman, Mount Holyoke College Chamber Singers and Yehuda Hanani on cello.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
