Eko Nova Season Finale, Featuring Joshua Roman
April 13th, 2018
Thatâ€™s Omaha, NEâ€”Omaha Chamber Music Societyâ€™s Eko Nova series closes next week with â€œTornado,â€ featuring â€œrock starâ€ cellist and frequent Omaha visitor, Joshua Roman.
Heâ€™s no stranger to Omaha, having played with the symphony multiple times, but his performance next week will be a bit more intimate at the Kaneko. The final performance of this seasonâ€™s Eko Nova concert series from Omaha Chamber Music Society.
The performance is titled â€œTornadoâ€ after Romanâ€™s composition, a highlight of the evening. On Monday night, Roman will join the JACK string Quartet, who have played at some of the biggest venues out thereâ€”Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and Teatro ColÃ³n in Argentina to name a few.
The concert is designed to bring the most out of the instruments. Romanâ€™s composition and other new works utilize extended technique. Perhaps surprisingly, the set list threads new music and old, finding harmonic similarities in the pre-Baroque â€œThree Madrigals,â€ by Carlo Gesualdo. There are no vocalists for the performance, so those parts will be interpreted by strings as well.
Tornado, part of OCMSâ€™s Eko Nova Series is this Monday, April 16th at 7:00pm at the Kaneko. To register, visit theKaneko.org.
