Zamler-Carhart /Rauh /Greenberg
Sasha Zamler-Carhart (voice), Charlie Rauh (guitar), Jesse Greenberg (glockenspiel)
A voice/guitar/glockenspiel trio dedicated to composing music in real time on poetry, founded in 2015 in New York. The trio has a special bond with medieval poetry— from Byzantine kontakia to the Occitan troubadours—always sung in its original language. It is renowned for its expert grasp of meter, prosody and phonetics and its ability to communicate poetic devices to modern audiences in a fresh and engaging way. It has earned particular recognition as a specialist of the troubadour repertoire and was featured twice on the Festival “Les Troubadours chantent l’art Roman” in the South of France. It has performed extensively at home and in Europe, in venues ranging from Manhattan contemporary classical music hotspots to gothic abbeys in the French countryside to Belgian underground clubs. The trio also has a special relationship with contemporary experimental poetry, and occasionally collaborates with living poets, such as with award-winning Polish author Zenon Fajfer.
