CSUSB Opera Theatre director Stacey Fraser performs one of Luciano Berio’s 14 Sequenzas Los Angeles TimesSept. 21, 2017
A review of a recent performance of Luciano Berio’s 14 Sequenzas mentioned that Stacey Fraser, Cal State San Bernardino professor of music and director of the CSUSB Opera Theatre, and her performance of Sequenza III, “the most famous of the series,” staff write Mark Swed wrote. “Stacey Fraser made the Sequenza into a seamless aria, sure of musical direction while missing none of the humor or the frightening shocks of horror,” Swed wrote.
Fraser and other local musicians performed in the new music series Tuesdays @ Monk Space in Los Angeles earlier this week. “Each Sequenza is a singular solo piece that requires a performer to go beyond normal techniques, beyond what even seems possible, to produce all manner of arresting sounds,” Swed wrote. “The other big step is to give the impression of personifying those sounds so that the distinction between, say, bassoonist and bassoon, as well as between sound and effect, becomes strikingly and stirringly blurred.”
David Yaghoubian, professor of history at Cal State San Bernardino, was interviewed for “The demise of the dollar,” an episode for the program “Economic Divide.” Yaghoubian discusses the history of how the U.S. dollar became a major currency for global trade, and its current and future role in the world economy.
