In partnership with CONCERT:NOVA, the ARTALISM COALITION presents a LATE:NIGHT event exploring the role of color in timbre and in wine thanks to a collaboration with Dan Wright's award-winning Abigail Street and his innovative wine menu.
syn·es·the·sia: TASTING BERIO THROUGH WINE
a LATE:NIGHT collaboration with Dan Wright’s Abigail Street
Sequenza I for flute
Sequenza III for woman’s voice
Sequenza VII for oboe
Sequenza IXa for clarinet
A regular in Cincinnati’s top ten list, Abigail Street is the sophisticated sister restaurant to Senate and Pontiac BBQ in Over the Rhine. Chef and owner Dan Wright can be described as “street and savory” and feels no obligation to follow the rules. A recent innovation introduces synesthesia into the wine-tasting experience and inspired this collaboration with concert:nova. As part of the Late:Night series, a short wine class by Cutting Edge Imports presenting the selected wines and the innovative color system will inform abbreviated performances of Berio’s equally imaginative canon of Sequenzas. The solo texture of his compositions for varied instruments places the role of color or timbre on the same level as rhythm, harmony, and melody. Join us for an exciting night tasting, seeing, and hearing colors!
ABIGAIL STREET 1214 VINE STREET WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 26TH 9:30-11PM
