Events | Concert: "Three poems" by Olga Rayeva

Los Angeles | June 5, 2018

Tuesdays@Monk Space presents the World Premiere of
"THREE POEMS" by Olga Rayeva

Performed by gnarwhallaby @ Tuesdays Monk Space
Supported by Villa Aurora.

The ever-adventurous and virtuosic ensemble gnarwhallaby performs at Tuesdays at Monk Space with a program of new works, each written specifically for them and their unique sonic profile. World premieres include "Three Poems" by Olga Rayeva (2016 Villa Aurora composer-in-residence) and a set of variations by UCSD-alum Daniel Tacke, inspired by the Morton Feldman miniature "Half a minute, it's all I've time for." Filling out the program are two very recent quartet commissions: one by local favorite Élise Roy, and the other by the world-renowned Richard Barrett, an epic homage to four great American composer-performers: Cecil Taylor, Thelonious Monk, Eric Dolphy, and Miles Davis.

Russian-born Olga Rayeva received numerous awards and scholarships, including two stipends from the Berlin Senate, a residency fellowship at the German Academy Rome, Casa Baldi, as well as a Villa Aurora Fellowship in 2016. Her compositions are presented at many of Europe’s most important festivals, as well as in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Korea.

$20 for the general public, and $15 for Students/Seniors/ACFLA via

Monk Space, 4414 W 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90004
