Hakami – Sheegog – Laskin perform Rodríguez’ El Abrigo Negro
As part of The Juilliard School’s Composition Concert, Iván Enrique Rodríguez’ piano trio El Abrigo Negro will be performed by the exceptional trio comprised by Leerone Hakami on the Violin, Philip Sheegog on the Cello and Ilia Laskin on the Piano. The concert will also include works by Adam Billings, Ross Griffey, Marco-Adrián Ramos and Christopher Jessup and will take place at the the celebrated and acoustically remarkable Paul Recital Hall at The Juilliard School in Lincoln Center, New York City.
El Abrigo Negro (The Black Coat) is a descriptive work aspiring to narrate the short story of the same name by Russian author Lyudmila Petrushevskaya. Different musical motifs are used throughout the piece to describe the skewed situations and emotions the protagonist experiences during a series of surreal vicissitudes. From disorienting darkness to the struggle of escape, from the bewildered confusion and unresolved limbo to fleeting moments of hope to tortuous reality, El Abrigo Negro provides an enigmatic journey for Piano, Violin and Cello through the lugubrious and sinister descriptions of Lyudmila Petrushevskaya’s storytelling.
