OCT 16th, 2021 – the world premier of Maria Faust’s MOnuMENT at Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island in New York City – celebrating #LouisKahn120
The event was one of several international projects connecting Saaremaa island (Estonia) and Roosevelt island (NYC).
An inspiring collaboration between the Louis Kahn Estonia Foundation, the Ministry of Estonian Culture, and the Estonian House in NYC.
Translating Kahn’s architecture to music via graphic notation (by Maria Faust), the material was brought to life by an exciting quartet of brass and woodwind instrumentalists, including Faust on alto saxophone, Joe Boga on trumpet, Sam Kulik on trombone, and Dan Peck on tuba.
