Marc Sabat: Partite Requiem
Soloist Kevin McFarland brings a unique depth of insight to the sweeping microtonal essays of Radulescu and Sabat — iterations of McFarland’s creative practice tethering together and reflecting inner and outer frames.
Kevin McFarland is best known as the founding cellist of the world-renowned JACK Quartet, with whom he traveled across five continents, collaborated with a diverse array of composers, and performed up to seventy concerts a year. After his final appearance with JACK he relocated from New York to Colorado where he now lives with his partner and two dogs. Past guest performances include appearances with the International Contemporary Ensemble, Alarm Will Sound, Ensemble Signal, Talea Ensemble, and Wordless Music Orchestra. Kevin’s composition works have been performed by vocalist Abigail Fischer, Hutchins Consort East, and the Deviant Septet. His first published essay appears in Performing Xenakis from Pendragon Press. His current musical focus gravitates around composition, electronic music, and solo and chamber music performances. Kevin holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the Eastman School of Music where he studied composition with Robert Morris, David Liptak, Steven Stucky, and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon, and cello with Steven Doane. He will attend the University of Denver – Lamont School of Music to pursue a Master’s Degree in Music Composition beginning in the fall of 2022.
