Troy SB Music Hall Music at Noon: Ricochet Duo | Bolcum, Green, Mellits, Tann, Opel, Chen-Yi & more

Tuesday, November 14th 2017 at 12:00 pm

Since 1988, on the second Tuesday of each month, The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall’s free Music at Noon concert series has highlighted the work of exceptional regional musicians with a diverse mix of musical styles. The 2017-18 Music at Noon series at the Music Hall continues with a performance by piano and marimba duo Ricochet Duo [pianist Rose Chancler and marimbist Jane Boxall].

With a most untamed manner, our program entitled “Dance with the Octopus” highlights works inspired by imitating, emulating, and encompassing all things animal with the aim of getting the young, and the older, hooting, buzzing, chirping, and dancing in their seats.

This performance merges two Ricochet Duo programs, one entitled “Dances” and the other, “Feather, Fur & Scales.” Although the latter is still under development, Ricochet Duo recognizes that “play” is inherent in both dancing and whether one is a cat, dog, or bird lover, just about everyone love of animals in one way or another (social media can attest to that).

Here’s a sampling of the program:

  • William Bolcom — “Old Adam” from The Garden of Eden
  • George Hamilton GreenChromatic Foxtrot
  • Red NorvoDance of the Octopus
  • Marc Mellits — “Evil Yellow Penguin” from Tight Sweater Remix
  • Takashi Yoshimatsu — “Interlude with Birds” from Pleiades Dances
  • Jesús CastilloFiesta de Pájaros! (piano only)
  • Chen Yi — Miao Dances from China West Suite
  • Hilary Tann — “Kestrel” from Solstice *
  • Doug OpelPlaytime with Elvis and Krispy *
  • Nikolai Rimsky-KorsakovFlight of the Bumble Bee (marimba only)
  • Garth FarrTuatara

* These two works were commissioned by Ricochet Duo for our “Woodswoman Project”
