This performance has been made possible by the Alice M. Ditson Fund, Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the Office of Global Programs, and the Department of Music, Columbia University.The program includes compositions written for Anssi Karttunen by several of the most prominent composers who have studied or taught at Columbia (Edmund Campion, Tan Dun, Fred Lerdahl, Bryan Jacobs, Taylor Brook, Zosha Di Castri, Yoshiaki Onishi, Pablo Ortiz and Nina Young) and two Finnish composers, Magnus Lindberg and Kaija Saariaho. Lindberg and Saariaho have multiple relationships with all these composers and with Columbia’s Department of Music. Since friendship is the strong connection underlying all the works on the program, Anssi Karttunen wanted to include an homage to another close friend of his, Henri Dutilleux, whose Centenary falls on January 22, 2016. After the concert, Nina C. Young and Anssi Karttunen will discuss the Creative Dialogue project that generated the Five Dialogues.
