Soprano Susan Botti and clarinetist Gleb Kanasevich present the premiere of Rahilia Hasanova‘s chamber opera for two performers, Pendulum Clocks (2014).
In the world of contemporary classical music, Rahilia Hasanova is known as a brilliant and prolific composer with a unique and powerful voice. The strength of her music is in bridging the two seemingly disparate worlds of Eastern and Western cultures — by combining the essence of her native Azerbaijani culture and traditional music that represents the East with the contemporary classical music traditions of the West, Hasanova creates unparalleled music forms and materials that are as diverse as they are unforgettable.
$15 general admission, $10 seniors, $5 students, free for UMBC music majors and music faculty/staff, available online (Fall 2019) or at the box office one hour prior to the performance.
