News Marlboro Presents a Concert by Matan Rubinstein and Friends
MARLBORO, VT – (October 9, 2012) – Marlboro College music professor and composer Matan Rubinstein will be joined by Jason Robinson and Bob Weiner for a concert at Ragle Hall, Marlboro college on Sunday, October 28, at 3:00pm. The ensemble is called Sada, and their concert is free and open to the public.
In Arabic and Hindi, sada means simple, unadorned or without trimmings. The concept behind this ensemble is to distill the music into its simplest possible form, making it spare and free of unnecessary embellishments. The group is comprised of some of the most creative and skilled musicians in the New England area, together realizing the porous boundaries between composition and improvisation, form and freedom, style and abstract expression.
The newest member of the music faculty, Matan came to Marlboro last year after four years as a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater. He brings a wide range of talents and experiences: he’s an accomplished composer of electronic music, a talented and well respected improvising pianist and a scholar with a wide background in music theory and history.
