    Urban Nocturnes

    “The Unreal dwelling”


    The morning that I received the call from Steven Moeckel asking me to write a piece for unaccompanied violin, I had been reading from a collection of literary prose by Matsuo Basho, the famous Japanese haiku poet.  We were in the midst of the long shutdown for the Covid-19 pandemic.  Musicians were not working; whole symphony seasons had been cancelled.  We discussed the artistic (let alone financial) crisis the situation was creating.  He talked of having taken a trip to the Oregon coast and taken long walks through misty forests to facilitate some serious artistic soul searching.  He had formulated a plan for an unaccompanied recording and wanted to commission a new work for it.  The album, Sei Solo Looking Within, was released in June of 2020.

    MusicFest, in Collaboration with the Telluride Chamber Music Association, brings live classical music back to Telluride in the form of Summer Soirees at the Mai’s Residence. Glenn Stallcop’s Nuances de Noir, along with his Jazz-inspired duos, are featured on the program.

    The full 2022 series runs from June 25th through July 3rd at the residence of Anne and Vincent Mai. The property is a restored barn overlooking Mt. Sunshine off Highway 145 near the Sunshine Campground. The series will have something for everybody, including classical chamber music, modern and world-inspired music, and accompanying dance performances. 

    “Chamber music concerts offer that rare combination of great music and the intimate ratio of artist to audience member. Combined with a fabulous location and, for the first time this year, a lovely glass of wine and the offer of cheese at the conclusion of each concert, MusicFest’s Summer Soirees will truly be a gathering and conversation in music,” duoJalal said in a statement.
