2014 MAM Roster Update

MAM is excited to announce an updated artist roster. There have been some significant developments that we wanted to share with you. As usual, we’ve divided the artists in two categories: Classical and Jazz. Perhaps we’ll stop doing that in the future, since it is such an imperfect way to pigeon-hole the work of these great musicians.

Oh, and don’t forget to join the Directory of Teaching Artists, it’s free!

Classical

Carnegie_picThe Kaleidos Duo released a CD for the second year in a row: Italy’s “Generation of 1880″ and Their Disciples. After their switch to Romeo Records, they are busier than ever with a positive review in The Strad (August 2014). Both Hristov and Valjarevic are university professors with decades of teaching experience and accomplished students worldwide.

HelixCollective2We heard about flutist Sarah Robinson and her Helix Collective, through her fascinating doctoral thesis Chamber Music in Alternative Venues in the 21st Century U.S.. She is a co-founder of the LA chapter of the famous movement Classical Revolution. Helix Collective is now available for one-of-a-kind concerts, masterclasses, and lectures.

Jazz

Photo by Oliver KendlMarvin Stamm and Claudio Roditi are two esteemed jazz trumpeters, though their musical worlds are distinct and representative of unique moments in the history of Jazz. They do not really need an introduction from us, so feel free to read more about them on the Artist page.

Ralph Lalama. Photo by John AbbottRalph Lalama is a solid fixture of the New York jazz scene and respected world-wide. With teaching and performing engagements all over the US, his musical expertise and connection with “the Beat” is highly valued by students and their professors.

The Strad Reviews the Kaleidos Duo

Carnegie_pic“Respighi’s later B minor Sonata also turns up in a fine recital by the Kaleidos Duo (violinist Miroslav Hristov and pianist Vladimir Valjarevic) that usefully collects a number of pieces together under the title ‘Italy’s “Generation of 1880″ and Their Disciples’, a reference to the group of Italian composers whose determinedly tonal outlook bucked contemporary trends (Romeo Records 7304). This gifted duo’s urgently spontaneous reading, deeply felt and affectionately phrased, is the emotional nerve centre of a programme that also includes Dallapiccola’s neo-Baroque Tartiniana seconda (an arresting 1956 rethink of Tartini’s A minor Sonata), Ghedini’s dreamily archaic Bizzaria and Rota’s Improvviso, a lively take on Prokofiev (the booklet note is correct in asserting it is nominally based in C as opposed to the listings’ D minor).  Rounding things off in style are Pizzetti’s strikingly inventive Tre canti and two haunting cantos by Malipiero.”

Julian Haylock, The Strad, August 2014
