Czech avant-garde violinist, singer, and composer Iva Bittová opens her 2022 CAST Distinguished Visiting Artist residency with a performance celebrating the power and urgency of coming together in song to create hope and nourish our selves and our planet.

She is joined by MIT's Vocal Jazz Ensemble directed by Laura Grill Jaye; violinist and assistant professor of music Natalie Lin Douglas; clarinetist, professor of music, and Director of Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) Evan Ziporyn; and a chamber ensemble of Boston-based professional musicians. Bittová's residency continues her creative collaboration with MIT begun in 2013.


Program Includes:


• Béla Bartók, selections from 44 Duos for Two Violins (with Natalie Lin Douglas)


• Farewell, arranged by Evan Ziporyn


• Luciano Berio, Folk Songs: Black is the colour (USA), I wonder as I wander (USA), Loosin yelav (Armenia), Rossignolet du bois (France), A la femminisca (Sicily), La donna ideale (Italy), Ballo (Italy), Motettu de Tristura (Sardinia), Malorous qu'o un fenno (Auvergne [France]), Lo fiolaire (Auvergne [France]), Azerbaijan love song (Azerbaijan)
