Choreography by Merce Cunningham
Arranged by Robert Swinston
Music by John Cage
Alexei Lubimov, piano
Joelle Harvey, soprano
Esteemed Russian pianist Alexei Lubimov gave the Moscow premieres of works by John Cage in the 1960s. He has since performed an extensive repertoire on stages throughout the world, ranging from Lincoln Center to the Salzburg Festival.
In this program, Lubimov plays Cage’s Four Walls (1944) with a new staging of Merce Cunningham’s Doubletoss (1993), arranged by Robert Swinston. Performed by former Merce Cunningham dancers, 4 Walls/Doubletoss Interludes is a unique merging of the voices of Cage and Cunningham, interpreted by artists deeply influenced by them.
Generous support for both Alexei Lubimov programs provided by The AG Foundation.
4 Walls / Doubletoss Interludes is presented in association with the Merce Cunningham Trust.
