The New York City Master Chorale Presents
MUSIC OF MAURICE DURUFLÉ


May 22, 2010

 

 



New York, NY. – Under the direction of Artistic Director Thea Kano, the New York City Master Chorale (NYCMC) concludes its fourth season on Saturday, May 22 at 8 PM at Church of St. Paul the Apostle (Columbus Avenue at 60th Street, Manhattan). Repertoire for Music of Maurice Duruflé includes Maurice Duruflé: Messe Cum Jubilo; Quatre Motets sur des Thèmes Grégoriens; and Requiem. Stephen Hamilton will accompany the performance on organ. The concert features special guests the Rock Creek Singers of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC, who will join the men of the NYCMC for the Messe Cum Jubilo.
Dr. Kano, who has been praised for her dynamic conducting, brings unique insight to this music. Dr. Kano studied with the Association Duruflé in Paris while writing her dissertation on the Duruflé Requiem at UCLA.

Concert organist Dr. Hamilton has a strong reputation in organ performance, especially with works by French composers, and has been praised by The New York Times for his excellent performances.

Tickets for Music of Maurice Duruflé are priced at $30. Student and senior tickets are available for $20. Tickets may be purchased online at www.nycmasterchorale.org  or by calling the Box Office at (917) 326-1422. Tickets will also available at the door the evening of the concert.

About Composer Maurice Duruflé

Maurice Duruflé was born in Louviers, France in 1902. In 1912, he became chorister at the Rouen Cathedral Choir School, where he studied piano and organ with Jules Haelling. At age 17, upon moving to Paris, he took private organ lessons with Charles Tournemire, whom he assisted at Basilique Ste-Clotilde, Paris until 1927. In 1920 Duruflé entered the Conservatoire de Paris, eventually graduating with first prizes in organ, harmony, piano accompaniment, and composition. In 1927, Louis Vierne nominated him as his assistant at Notre-Dame. Duruflé became titular organist of St. Étienne-du-Mont in Paris in 1929, a position he held for the rest of his life. In 1943 he became professor of harmony at the Conservatoire de Paris, where he worked until 1970. In 1947, Duruflé wrote what is probably the most famous of his few pieces: Requiem, op. 9. He died in Louveciennes, France in 1986 at the age of 84.
About Organist Stephen Hamilton

Dr. Hamilton is Minister of Music at the historic Church of the Holy Trinity (Episcopal), in New York City, where he conducts the semi-professional Holy Trinity Choir, and is Artistic Director of Music at Holy Trinity, the church’s subscription concert series. The New York Times acknowledges that Dr. Hamilton’s concert series “is an important venue for week-end presentations.” Highlights of Dr. Hamilton’s career include the premiere performance of Kenton Coe's Concerto for Organ, Strings and Percussion in France. His compact disc release of Marcel Dupré's Le Chemin de la Croix met with exceptional reviews from a number of magazines and trade journals including The American Organist and The American Record Guide.

In addition to his duties at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Dr. Hamilton is a member of the artist faculties at Hunter College and Queens Colleges and teaches organ in the pre-college division of the Manhattan School of Music. Dr. Hamilton has presented church music repertoire classes for the 2002, 2004, and 2006 National Conventions of the American Guild of Organists in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Chicago.
