Music Center Recital Hall (UCSC)


Shujaat Husain Khan is perhaps the greatest North Indian classical musician of his generation. He belongs to the Imdad Khan gharana (tradition) of the sitar (lute) and is the seventh in the unbroken line from his family that has produced many musical masters. His style known as the gayaki ang, is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice. 

Shujaat Husain Khan is the son and disciple of master sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan. His musical pedigree continues back through his grandfather, Ustad Inayat Khan; his great-grandfather, Ustad Imdad Khan; and his great-great-grandfather, Ustad Sahebdad Khan—all leading artists of their generations. 

 

Samir Chatterjee is a very well-known Indian musician, specializing in tabla. He performed at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo in 2007. His compositions and writings are widely acclaimed. He can be heard on numerous recordings as a soloist, as well as accompanying many of India’s greatest musicians, and in collaboration with western musicians of outstanding caliber. 


He has become a catalyst in the fusion of Indian and Western music, performing with Pauline Oliveros, William Parker, Branford Marsalis, Ravi Coltrane, Dave Douglas, Myra Melford, Steve Gorn, Glen Velez, Boby Sanabria, Ben Verdery, Dance Theater of Harlem, Boston Philharmonic, Ethos Percussion group, Da Capo Chamber Orchestra, Boston Musica Viva and other jazz, classical and avant guard musicians and ensembles.  He is the founder-director of New York-based Chhandayan, an organization promoting and preserving Indian music and culture. He teaches at Yale University, University of Pittsburgh, Manhattan School of Music, New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and University of Bridgeport (Connecticut).  He has authored two significant books on Indian music, A Study of Tabla and Music of India. He lives in the New York-New Jersey area.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Pianist JOSEPH KUBERA has been a leading interpreter of contemporary music for the past three decades. He has been soloist at such festivals as the Warsaw Autumn, Berlin Inventionen and Prague Spring, and has worked closely with such legendary composers as John Cage, Morton Feldman, La Monte Young, and Robert Ashley. Among the composers who have written works for him are Michael Byron, Anthony Coleman, David First, Alvin Lucier, Roscoe Mitchell, Larry Polansky, and “Blue” Gene Tyranny. A longtime Cage advocate, he has recorded the Music of Changes and Concert for Piano and Orchestra, and toured widely with the Cunningham Dance Company through the 1970s and 1980s. Mr. Kubera has been awarded grants through the National Endowment for the Arts and the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts.

 

Mr. Kubera is a core member of S.E.M. Ensemble, the DownTown Ensemble and Ostravska Banda, and he has performed with a wide range of New York ensembles and orchestras ranging from Steve Reich and Musicians to the Brooklyn Philharmonic. His duo-piano team with Sarah Cahill has commissioned works by Terry Riley and Ingram Marshall and toured widely. Mr. Kubera’s playing may be heard on the Wergo, Albany, New Albion, New World, Lovely Music, O.O. Discs, Mutable Music, Cold Blue, and Opus One labels.

 

 

MARILYN NONKEN is one of the most celebrated champions of the modern repertoire of her generation, known for performances that explore transcendent virtuosity and extremes of musical expression. Upon her 1993 New York debut, she was heralded as "a determined protector of important music" (New York Times). Recognized a "one of the greatest interpreters of new music" (American Record Guide), she has been named “Best of the Year” by some of the nation's leading critics.

 

Marilyn Nonken's performances have been presented at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Miller Theatre, the Guggenheim Museum, (Le) Poisson Rouge, IRCAM and the Theatre Bouffe du Nord (Paris), the ABC (Melbourne), Instituto-Norteamericano (Santiago), the Music Gallery (Toronto), the Phillips Collection, and the Menil Collection. Festival appearances include the Festival d'Automne (Paris) and When Morty Met John, Making Music, and Works and Process (all, New York), American Sublime (Philadelphia), The Festival of New American Music (Sacramento), Musica Nova (Helsinki), New Music Days (Ostrava), Music on the Edge (Pittsburgh), Piano Festival Northwest (Portland), and the William Kapell International Piano Festival and Competition.

 

Nonken has recorded on over a dozen labels, and her solo discs include "American Spiritual," a CD of works written for her, “Morton Feldman: Triadic Memories,” “Tristan Murail: The Complete Piano Music,” and “Stress Position: The Complete Piano Music of Drew Baker.” A student of David Burge at the Eastman School, Marilyn Nonken received a Ph.D. degree in musicology from Columbia University. She is currently writing a monograph on spectral piano music for Cambridge University Press, and is Director of Piano Studies at New York University's Steinhardt School.
