Upcoming concert at RVCC dedicated to Catalan contemporary composers Brotons, Cervelló and Migó

Performing.  New Jersey, Virtual, 02/11/2020

With a distinct history stretching back to the early middle ages, Catalonia has given the world many important artists. Despite more than a thousand years of political flux in the region, Catalonia has long maintained its own unique culture and language. While the music of Catalan composers is still comparatively unknown in American concert halls, this program will give center stage to compositions by several its most dynamic living composers, showcasing the rich traditions, vibrant colors, and fiery passion of its proud people.




The Raritan Valley Community College Arts & Design department is launching a virtual concert series to help defray the cost of private instructional lessons for RVCC music majors. The first virtual concert, “The Music of Catalonia: Works by Migó, Brotons & Cervelló,” will be live-streamed from the RVCC Nash Theatre on November 8, at 2 p.m. The concert will feature artists Paul Cohen (saxophone); Anna Keiserman (piano); Elena Chernova-Davis (violin); and Philipp Sheegog (cello).

The concert is the first selection in the department’s MOZAIKA Concert Series, created to promote multicultural dialogue through the performance of music, from the classical canon through the 21st Century. Music of living composers from around the globe will be featured throughout the series. All concerts will be held on the second Sunday of the month at 2 p.m., and an online discussion with the musicians will follow the performances. The artists will offer their interpretation of the works, sharing their thoughts on the composers’ diverse identities and unique artistic languages.

The November 8 concert is dedicated to the music of Catalonia, featuring compositions by three of its living composers: Marc Migó, Jordi Cervelló, and Salvador Brotons. Their dynamic work showcases the vibrant, rich traditions of the region’s proud people.
