Colored in Velvet, a noir anti-Valentine’s Day concert by Parhelion Trio, seduces the listener with bold contemporary classical music that is at once macabre and sweet.
Colored in Velvet, also featuring classic Piazzolla works with a live performance by Argentine tango dancers, plays February 8th at 8pm at The Firehouse Space in Brooklyn, 246 Frost St.
On February 8 Parhelion Trio presents a vigorous program for an anti-Valentine’s Day concert for the ages: Colored in Velvet. Featuring daring contemporary classical music of the past decade that explores different aspects of death and sensuality, Colored in Velvet showcases an array of compositions tainted with darker leanings. From Maldorer, by Daniel Felsenfeld, is a chilling vocal and musical narration based on excerpts from a grotesque gothic novel by the French-Uruguayan 19th century poet Lautréamont. On a similar contemplation of the topic of death, Death Stench, by Matthew Hindson, virtuosically displays a genre-bending style of avant-garde meets death-metal.
Additional highlights from Colored in Velvet include a selection of fiery works infused with elements of popular music. Parhelion trio will perform two classic tangos by Astor Piazzolla—with special guest Argentine tango dancers Jack Hanley and Nan Min—and Techno-Parade by Guillaume Connesson, a joyfully obsessive play on the vitality of techno music.
NYC-based Parhelion Trio—hailed as being “highly charged,” “virtuosic,” and embodying a stirring “rhythmic vitality”—is a versatile all-female ensemble that transcends styles and stereotypes. Parhelion Trio performs music ranging from beloved masterworks of the classical tradition and exciting new works by young living composers to popular music they grew up listening to. Members of Parhelion Trio include flutist Sarah Carrier, clarinetist Medina, and pianist Andrea Christie.
Colored in Velvet will take place on Friday February 8 at 8pm at The Firehouse Space in Williamsburg. The venue features eclectic curated events in a cozy, Très Brooklyn setting. Admission is $10 at the door.

Since March 11th, I have been struggling to find the words to express the level of sadness and sympathy I feel for the survivors and victims in Japan. While the sheer numbers are horrifying, the stories, personal accounts, and photos are the most painful and tear-inducing. I feel some relief to finally see photos of […]

A note of preface: while this weekly is currently called “Must See Shows in NYC” (better search engine optimization maybe?), it would be more aptly named “Shows That Sarah Would Go See if She Could Afford to Go Out Every Night of the Week and Never had to Practice.” I try to go to as […]
