      Curious Flights Presents "Transatlantic Crossings"

      Curious Flights concludes the 2013 inaugural season on Friday, October 18, 2013 with a program featuring a selection of contemporary works by U.K. and U.S. composers. Renowned British composer Edwin Roxburgh will join Curious Flights for a week residency offering master classes to the Bay Area, presenting a pre-concert lecture and conducting his own chamber work How Pleasant to Know Mr. Lear, a work commissioned in 1971 by American violinist Yehudi Menuhin. Acclaimed violinist and Berkley Symphony Executive Director René Mandel is featured as soloist for Six Night Sunrise by Bay Area composer Dylan Mattingly, whose work Invisible Skyline was recently given a successful world premiere by Berkeley Symphony. British percussionist Nicholas Reed, a longtime collaborator of Roxburgh and Co-Artistic Director for this concert, also features as guest soloist and will perform Roxburgh's Aube, a work written for him by the composer. Both graduates of the Royal College of Music, Mr. Reed and Mr. Guy join forces to perform Roxburgh's Dithyramb I and Scenes From Dobashi by Bay Area composer Larry London, also featuring violinist Tess Varley.
