Cellist Inbal Segev presents an hour-long program featuring music for solo cello by three of today’s prominent women composers-Missy Mazzoli, Reena Esmail, and Gity Razaz- at Seattle Symphony’s Raisbeck Music Center. Segev’s performance is part of Octave 9’s inaugural Contemporary Music Marathon, showcasing music from over 50 living composers over a period of 24 hours. The focal point of Segev’s program, Legend of Sigh (2015) by Gity Razaz, is a multimedia piece for cello and electronics. Segev will also perform Missy Mazzoli’s A Thousand Tongues (2009) from Vespers for a New Dark Age; Reena Esmail’s Perhaps (2005); and Dan Cooper’s Spinning Song.
Presented by Seattle Symphony.
