Zola Jesus and Stephen Prutsman with SPCO String Quartet; Ian Ding and Ashley Bathgate
Nika Danilova, the woman behind Zola Jesus, brings her epic, iconoclastic sound—full of dark evocative beauty—to Saint Paul in a first-time pairing with esteemed composer and former SPCO Artistic Partner Stephen Prutsman. Prutsman has created new arrangements of original compositions by Danilova for string quartet, piano, chamber organ and electronics, which will be performed by SPCO musicians and Prutsman himself. Danilova’s classically-trained “indomitable” (Spin) voice draws from industrial, classical, electronic and experimental rock influences; her recent collaborators include filmmaker David Lynch and French musical act M83. Prutsman’s arrangements have been performed by the Kronos Quartet, Dawn Upshaw and Yo Yo Ma, among others; he’s also internationally acknowledged as one of the finest American pianists of his generation.
