“Death of Classical” concerts resume.
The catacombs of Historic Greenwood cemetery in Brooklyn is one of the unusual venues that music promoter (and rock musician) Andrew Ousley uses for the small-capacity Death of Classical concerts he has been programming since 2015. On Tuesday 7 September this chamber concert series resumes for the first time since the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic with the three concerts (from 17. 30 to 18:30, from 19:30 to 20:30 and from 21:00 to 22:00) Music for Two People the composer, keyboardist and singer Caroline Shaw – member of Roomful of Teeth – and the cellist Andrew Yee – member of the Attacca Quartet and Chamber Queer -, in which they will perform “a combination of Caroline’s works and my compositions –say Yee–. We will also be doing a unique arrangement of the slow movement of the Quartet for the End of Time by Messiaen. All of it is for the two of us on cello, viola, keyboard and voices”.
