Brooklyn Bound

The loft scene is alive!

Now in its ninth year, Brooklyn Bound is a popular series of concerts at Sō’s working studio in the Navy Yard section of Brooklyn. When social distance became a necessity, we decided to create a new version and transition to a fully virtual one. Casual and intimate, the concerts feature us and emerging ensembles from our local scene.

New in 2019, the Brooklyn Bound Podcast! Check it out below on this page. Each batch of new episodes appears in the youtube playlist, which you can search on the upper right hand corner of the embedded video.

Brooklyn Bound is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Adam Sliwinski and Cristina Altamura

Adam and Cristina will be performing Dan Trueman’s Preludes for bitKlavier.

Pianist, educator, and impresaria Cristina Altamura has a multi-hued career shaped by a rich understanding of musical traditions with a distinctly modern flair for communication. She weaves together a crystalline technique, inspired musicality, innovative collaborations, creative programming, a love of community engagement, and a deep knowledge of pedagogy into a lush musical tapestry.

With a prodigious foundation in the repertoire of Western Europe, Altamura’s professional career began with a European debut with the Bucharest Philharmonic led by Karel Chichon; they subsequently developed a fruitful artistic partnership. This debut also led to her appointment as the principal soloist of the State Philharmonic of Bacau from 1999-2003; in this position, she recorded and performed a vast range of the piano concerto repertoire with orchestras throughout Romania and Europe.

Jason Treuting and Beth Meyers

Jason and Beth will be performing Jason Treuting’s Nine Numbers 2.

Violist, Beth Meyers was a founding member of the flute/viola/harp trio, “janus” whose debut album ‘i am not’ (New Amsterdam Records) was called “gorgeously subtle” (NPR’s Studio 360). Through their more than 14 years of collaboration and touring, janus commissioned over one hundred new works for the trio repertoire. The group’s final album was released in November 2016 and features the music of Paul Lansky and Jason Treuting.

As a chamber musician, Beth has also performed and recorded with groups including Alarm Will Sound, Ensemble ACJW, ACME Ensemble, Da Capo Chamber Players, Ensemble Signal, Hotel Elefant, the Knights, Meredith Monk Ensemble, Nexus, So Percussion, Steve Reich and Musicians, and the Ying Quartet.
