C4's European Premiere
C4 is thrilled to have recently received its European premiere through the digital launch of Pitter patter, pitter patter, and then —
composed by Daniel Andor-Ardó and conducted by Timothy Brown, both long-time composer, conductor, and performer members of C4.
C4’s 2016-17 Artist in Residence, Zsuzsanna Ardó introduced C4’s innovative work to Europeans through the Creatives without Borders' exhibition and installation she curated for the European Parliament (Brussels) about how collective memory endures through attitudes towards the ‘Other’. A critical theme of apparently enduring relevance and urgency, getting more so rather than less, by the day.
During the launch, and throughout the run of the exhibition, visitors engaging with the show had a chance to hear Pitter Patter, hot off our new CD, Cornerstones (official release coming in November).
Prior to this European digital premiere, Pitter Patter was given its world premiere by C4 in February 2013 and reprised at the ensemble's March 2016 appearance at the ACDA National Conference in Boston, followed by concert performances in New York as part of our regular season of concerts.
