Stefan Cwik invites you to attend what is to be a thrilling multi-media experience. His new work Transfigurations for orchestra and solo brass quintet is set to be premiered in the SF Civic Symphony's summer concert series (https://www.sfcivicmusic.org/calendar/2023/06/11/civic-symphony). The massive and cinematic work features paintings of renowned Mexican Artist Eduardo Rodriguez Calzado (https://eduardorodriguezcalzado.com/paintings-2019/) who will be creating digital animations of his own work. Working with the Mr. Calzado, and local DJ/Visual artist Kris Grant (https://www.linkedin.com/in/kris-c-grant), the collaboration will take the work of Calzado and create animations that music was written to specifically accompany. Much like Disney’s Fantasia, the audience will be taken on a journey through the art while Cwik’s trademark bombastic orchestral compositional style supercharges the ride through the paintings.
Leading the SF Civic Symphony will be conductor Brad Hogarth, and the solo Brass Quintet music will be performed by Brass Over Bridges (https://www.brassoverbridges.com/). A quintet made up of local professional musicians Joe Brown, Ari Micich, Erika Miras, Esther Armendariz, and Will Baker.
For examples of Cwik’s music, please check out the work American Troubadours on Soundcoud (https://soundcloud.com/stefan-thomas-cwik/cwik-american-troubadours?si=acb89cea51084e5b988f9177ccfa9cf9&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing)
Please stay tuned for more updates as the project unfolds. You won’t want to miss it!
