The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation presents a concert by Idith Meshulam Korman, designed in response to the paintings of Milton Resnick. Her performances reference Resnick’s lyrical abstractions, his doubt and self-questioning, military service, experimentation, and interest in mysticism:
Hanns Eisler: Sonata No. 3 (1943)
Morton Feldman: Vertical Thoughts 4 (1963)
Frederic Rzewski: Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier (2003)
John Cage: Water Music (1952)
George Crumb: selections from Makrokosmos, volume I (1972)
Idith Meshulam Korman received her bachelor’s degree from Rubin Academy in Tel Aviv and her doctorate from New York University, where she taught for ten years, researching the unpublished piano music of Stefan Wolpe. She has collaborated with the composer Gunther Schuller, as well as with the visual artists William Kentridge and Louise Fishman. She is the founder and director of Ensemble π, and sits on the board of the Association for the Promotion of New Music. She teaches at Bard College’s BPI Program.
