Inscape Chamber Orchestra returns to The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer where they have been the Ensemble-in-Residence since 2005. The diverse program includes works by Paul Hindemith, Osvaldo Golijov, and Washington D.C. composer, Joel Friedman (Elastic Band).
Elastic Band – An edgy, playful work that fuses jazz, rock, funk, and classical idioms.
Composer Joel Phillip Friedman’s natural creative impulse is to work across genres, and to compose music that is equally informed by his classical training and his engagement with the vernacular. His varied portfolio includes work for small and large ensembles, musical theater, opera, dance, film, jazz, and rock. Joel’s work is characterized by rhythmic energy, a fine balance between expressive power and playful wit, a sense of dramatic narrative, and melodic and harmonic inventiveness. New collaborations, teaching activities and projects continually refresh Joel’s thinking and writing.
