Lumina String Quartet Presents "Connecticut Yankees in the Khan's Tatar
Court" Concert of Music by American and Tatar Composers - May 15 in New
Fairfield, Connecticut

On Sunday, May 15 at 3 PM, Music at Saint Edward's will host "Connecticut
Yankees in the Khan's Tatar Court," a return engagement of the Lumina
String Quartet in a special program of works by Tatar and American
composers, including a multi-media presentation, at Saint Edward the
Confessor Church, 21 Brush Hill Road in New Fairfield, Connecticut.

Members of the Lumina Quartet include Asya Meshberg (violin), Lynn
Bechtold (Violin), Boris Deviatov (Viola), and Jennifer DeVore (cello).
Appearing with the ensemble on May 15 will be guest artist, Phillip
Bashor, principal clarinetist of the Greenwich Symphony.

American music featured in the concert will include selections from
George Gershwin and Duke Ellington, as well as works by contemporary
composers, Dan Cooper and Gene Pritsker.  Modern Eurasian influences
will be represented by Tatarstani composers Rashid Kalimoullin and Almaz
Monasypov.  A special feature of the concert will be a multi-media
realization of Gene Pritsker's "Poem #3", Reflections in sound on the
poem: "Song from Zapolya" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.  This work, which
had its world premiere at the Lumina's resident host institution, Norwalk
Community College, on March 6, 2005, was created in collaboration with
the painter Andrew Meshberg, also of New York City, who will unveil the
painting inspired by this poem.

This concert is free and open to the public, however donations are
accepted.  For more information, please call 203-746-6945.

As cultural ambassadors to the festival in Kazan, the Lumina will be
performing works by modern American composers of widely varied backgrounds
and musical styles, as well as a selection of chamber music by contemporary
Tatarian musicians.  In the past several years, the quartet has been a
regular part of the annual music festivals in Kazan, and has commissioned
and performed a number of original scores by native composers.  They
have also appeared in concerts elsewhere in Russia, including Moscow
and St.  Petersburg, as well as Odessa, Ukraine.

The May 15 concert is a prelude to the Quartet's forthcoming tour to
the International Festival of Contemporary Music "Europe-Asia" in the
ancient city of Kazan.  Capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, an independent
member of the Russian Federation, Kazan is celebrating the Summer of its
millennium year with a gala series of events highlighting its long
cultural history.  More about Tatarstan at http://www.tatar.ru/english.

Founded in 1992, the Quartet is ensemble-in-residence at Norwalk
Community College.  True to its name, the Lumina has continued to
enlighten audiences in the tri-state area and has appeared in music
festivals throughout Europe and central Asia.  In 1997, Lumina created
the Chamber Music Institute for Young Musicians at the Rich Forum of
Stamford Connecticut's Center for Performing Arts.  This highly successful
music festival has grown from one to thirteen string quartets, with
Lumina coaching each in quartet performance.  The quartet also maintains
an annual concert series in New York City, including the NYU Composition
Department, performing music exclusively written by students and faculty.
