MAYA Concert

a TRIO OF percussion, harp and flute founded in 2005, MAYA will be performing selections from The Book of Goddesses by Jewish-American composer Robert Paterson. Also on the program will be Different Voices by Israeli-American composer Yotam Haber. Both composers will be in attendance. Rounding out the one-hour program will be the 14th century Sephardic song Puncha, puncha, la rosa huela, in a setting by Erik Friedlander; two Armenian works by Gomidas and Sayat Nova; and the jazzy Middle Eastern Sisters, by MAYA’s percussionist John Hadfield.

The mission of MAYA is to perform, record and commission music from a broad variety of composers with a special emphasis toward nurturing relationships with emerging composers, as well as expanding its repertoire with music from a variety of cultures. Born out of the chamber music tradition and founded by three prominent New York City concert musicians, the ensemble has embarked on a major commissioning program, stretching the boundaries of the classical chamber concert and creating appealing programs that weave together music of diverse traditions. MAYA’s appearance is supported generously by the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation.

This event is the Book of Goddesses album-release concert.
