IN CELEBRATION OF THE EARTH
Paul Winter and Henrique Eisenmann
Falmouth Academy welcomes 7-time Grammy Award winner Paul Winter and pianist Henrique Eisenmann to perform on the lawn of the Simon Center for the Arts on August 28th at 7 PM. Proceeds benefit the Fund for Falmouth Academy.
A journey through Paul Winter’s world of “living music,” the concert will feature his soprano sax and the groundbreaking piano playing of Henrique Eisenmann. Joining them will be the voices of Wolf, Whale, Wood Thrush, and other members of what Winter calls “the greater symphony of the Earth.” The concert will be interwoven with stories of his adventures making music in the wilderness. This special duo performance will be a dynamic and intimate journey through a varied repertoire, all in celebration of the Earth.
Paul Winter's musical odyssey has long embraced the cultures and creatures of the world. His concert tours and recording expeditions have taken him to 52 countries and to wilderness areas on six continents, into which he has traveled on rafts, dog sleds, horses, kayaks, tugboats, and Land Rovers. He has recorded over 50 albums, seven of which have been honored with Grammy awards, including his 2006 album, Crestone.
Drawing inspiration from different world genres, chants, voices, poems, and animal sounds, Henrique Eisenmann is changing the paradigm of contemporary improvisation, creating an original musical universe that is powerfully inventive, authentic, and accessible to anyone. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Eisenmann has always been intrigued with the idea of translating different musical sonorities to the piano. Henrique is a faculty member at The Juilliard School (NYC) and the New England Conservatory in Boston.
