Mi Mo Da

'Russian Scenes' wakes its audience up and gets it drunk with music!

In a late-night performance that was hailed in an avalanche of cheers by an exhilarated audience glad they had stayed to the end, Carol Worthey 's dazzling evocations of Russian Life, cello duet Russian Scenes was given a a scintillating performance by Rostropovich proteges, Ruslan Biryukov and Maksim Velichkin , Cellists. The work takes us to eight varied scenes typical of Russian environments from a skating waltz on the frozen Volga, to a Russian tearoom, to a confrontation between a strict dancemaster and a flighty prima ballerina, to the Trans-Siberian Railroad chugging through a lonely forest, ending in a hilarious musical rendition of a Russian party that ends in a tipsy mix of vodka and champagne — given the formality of so many classical audiences it is so refreshing to see how the audience loves to feel free enough to laugh, aided by the panache of the performers' antics! Ruslan and Maksim have fun with this piece and so does the audience, by all indications.

Maksim Velichkin , as Curator, has been assembling an impressive number of soloists and chamber ensembles to present an eclectic series of chamber music concerts, mostly classical or contemporary but sometimes Jazz and World Music, at MiMoDa, a spacious dance and acoustic space with lofty ceilings and an informal but cutting-edge feel where MiMoDa Dance Recitals also take place. This exciting new venue can be accessed by walking to the back of the Paper & Plastik Cafe, that is, if you can manage to not have your nose and tummy direct you to the counter to enjoy a Latte and piece of scrumptious sour cherry or apple pie before the performance (highly recommended).

These MiMoDa concerts which are scheduled approximately every two weeks are located in the back of Paper & Plastic Cafe at:

Carol Worthey

West Coast Premiere of
'The River' in Beverly Hills

Carol Worthey was invited to perform her solo piano work "The River" at this delightful, elegant piano salon featuring the gorgeous new Steinway grand recently acquired by renowned Composer/Pianist/Educator (and Carol's dear friend) Deon Nielsen Price . Deon is indomitable and — after a house fire in her Culver City home — determined to make "lemonade out of lemons" in her beautiful temporary abode in Beverly Hills, by putting on a series of concerts.  Her new Steinway resounded with color and sparkle in the Great Room of the home while an appreciative audience listened to music from the Americas, Heitor Villa Lobos , Antonio Lauro , and contemporary compositions by Adrienne Albert , Deane Bottorf , Philip Gilberti , Howard Quilling , Deon Nielsen Price herself (performing as the Price Duo with her gifted clarinetist son, Berkeley Price ) and Carol Worthey , giving the West Coast Premiere of her evocative new work "The River".

Many painters (including Carol) had loaned the Price family a colorful collections of works that graced the tall walls of the concert room. Playing such a wonderful new piano and getting a warm response from the audience made this a memorable experience!

Carol Worthey / Matt Herskowitz / Sandy Hedgecock / Ken Hedgecock

'The River' flows from Carol Worthey's Fingers on International Radio

Carol Worthey was deeply honored by being invited by the Orchestra of Southern Utah and the hugely popular internet radio program Classical Music Discoveries to the charming town of Cedar City, Utah to be a Special Guest on the 14th Annual Recital Series and Classical Music Discoveries Radio Recital.   Host of the radio show Sandy Hedgecock interviewed Carol about her music, paintings and poetry and Carol read several poems on the air, portraits of the months of April, May, July, September and October, poems which seem to parallel the changing seasons in Utah.

The college town of Cedar City with its Victorian and craftsman homes, its pines shifting in the quiet breeze and its campus with its famous Shakespeare Festival has a very special atmosphere of Old World calm and timelessness.  Nestled in a valley surrounded by monumental scenery, most notably the natural cathedral of Zion National Park, with its glowing rose and orange in the setting sun, the streets of the town have a calming intimacy that is very welcoming and quite a contrast to the hugeness of its surrounds.  Zion is a magnificent testament to the glory of nature, a sacred spot to the Native Americans and appropriately named Zion by the traveling Mormons on their way to find Salt Lake.  What is most remarkable is that this mammoth natural cathedral was carved by a river over the eons.  A river, now a seemingly harmless and not-so-wide babbling stream, carved these caverns and statues — how remarkable was it then that the lyrical solo piano composition Carol chose to perform live on international radio is the musical incarnation of a River... and evokes the River of Life.

Undaunted by the global audience listening live, Carol's performance was heartfelt and stirring and was greeted by a very warm response from the live audience in the church.  A varied group of performers joined Carol in the program, and Canadian Composer/Pianist Matt Herskowitz closed the concert with a whirlwind of pieces from Chopin and Schumann to his own improvisations. Carol was especially delighted with the hospitality given to her and Ray by the Orchestra of Southern Utah at a bed and breakfast there, so that the couple could celebrate their 30th anniversary in a charming Victorian home!

The ZINKALI Trio

East Coast Reading of
'Romanza' for Horn & Piano

Zinkali Trio
Elise Carter , Flute
Susan LaFever , Horn
Laura Ravotti , Piano

Carol Worthey 's 'Romanza', originally composed for Violin & Piano was requested to be transcribed by the composer for Horn and Piano by Italian master horn virtuoso, Luca Benucci , who has plans to record the work in the near future on his first solo CD.  When renowned American hornist Susan LaFever met Carol Worthey at the Faces of Eve Concert in early April 2010, impressed by Carol's music, she asked the composer if she had any chamber works for horn.  Thus 'Romanza' had an East Coast reading with Susan being accompanied by Laura Ravotti .

Carol's work was featured on the concert along with works by personal friends Adrienne Albert , Katherine Hoover and Douglas Townsend , among others.

Carol is proud of the fact that a portion of the concert proceeds were donated to the families of the September 11th Fund.

Ruslan Biryukov / Maksim Velichkin

'Russian Scenes' comes to Beverly Hills for yet Another Performance!

The Los Angeles Cello Quartet regaled an enthusiastic audience in the elegant and intimate salon setting in Beverly Hills.  The concert series is a testament to Deon Nielsen Price 's indomitable spirit after suffering a house fire and subsequently deciding to host a wonderful series of concerts in her "new" temporary home with its impressive Great Room.  The fabulous Cello Duo Ruslan Biryukov and Maksim Velichkin regaled the audience with selections from Carol Worthey 's 'Russian Scenes', a work that they have continued to perform over and over as one of their signature works that has proved to be resoundingly popular with audiences.

The Cello Quartet, consisting of Ruslan Biryukov , Maksim Velichkin , Hope Easton , Garik Terzian and guest Patricia Ryan presented a virtuosic display of their cello talent in works by Bach-Gounod , Deon Nielsen Price , Adrienne Albert , David Popper , Frederic Chopin (Deon playing her glorious new Steinway grand) and ending with yet another virtuosic showpiece by David Popper .

'Monster Diva' Invades The Quiet of A Library and Causes 'Tears on Velvet'

The hushed environment of a library seemed to explode (the doors kept the rest of the building quiet) as Timur Bekbosunov , Tenor and Mary Au , Piano rendered 'Monster Diva', a song (lyrics and music by Carol Worthey ) inspired by Timur's flamboyant persona on stage.  It has become a dashing and dramatic signature song for this charismatic artist, ably accompanied by Mary Au .  This was followed by a contrasting work, Carol's 'Tears on Velvet', lyrics and music by the composer, a tender song of lovelorn woes with a piquant mix of Renaissance and contemporary sonorities.

Timur Premieres His Signature Song 'Monster Diva'

What is the striking-point when something "over the top" becomes so real and so powerful that all concepts of what is beautiful or charming, ugly or "too extreme" fly out the window? Tenor Timur Bekbosunov is such an alive performer that he reaches into the corners of the heart and breaks down shock waves in his audience, winning them over with his immense talent to own the room and lazer beam into the inner life and dream world of each individual there. Fascinatingly, before and after the show, Timur is without affectation, as genuinely nice, easy-going and attentive to others as he is electric and flamboyant on stage. It's an amazing contrast — but it's... Timur!

Bekbosunov has sung solo with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel , in Tobias Picker 's acclaimed opera "An American Tragedy" and in art song recitals in Europe and America. In a totally different vein, he has developed a very edgy cabaret show "Timur and The Dime Museum", offering numbers from Kurt Weill to Nine-Inch Nails , showpieces that sit somewhat uncomfortably (until you surrender to them) on the feverish border between extreme sophistication and "doomsday" barbarity.

Carol Worthey did not know what to expect when she went to see Timur's cabaret show (part of the Aloud Series at the Mark Taper Auditorium in Los Angeles' Central Public Library) eager to witness her concert pianist friend Mary Au play an electrified upright Toy Piano. Backed up by a band consisting of violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, drums, accordion as well as toy piano, Timur was dressed in Flash Gordon-like costumes with collars that jutted out like fins on fifties cars. Sporting a tail he sometimes whirled temptingly like a wicked watch chain, Timur intoned in a rich baritone or a perfect falsetto. His impromptu banter with the audience before each number was impishly humorous and totally at ease. Although he is from Kazakhstan and sang one song in Russian, Timur is fluent in English and every word he sang was clear. He is both subtle and direct — a fascinating performer whose eye contact and stage presence rips away any sense of non-involvement in his audience, leading them to scream, laugh, clutch their hearts and cheer to the rafters! Maybe Bette Midler was like that when (early on in her blaze of a career that ended up with her as a Disney artist) she sang in the gay steam-baths of Manhattan... there aren't many comparisons! Timur is unique and gives new meaning to the word "charisma."

For the first few minutes, Carol did not know what to think — then she decided to take it all in and became mesmerized, sitting on that feverish point between beauty, charm, ugliness and entrancement and surrendering to its immediacy. Timur can win over a spinster or a nun — he's dangerous on stage! Meeting Carol after the show, the tenor (now in normal attire) greeted her warmly, hugged her and declared, "Carol! I'm so glad you could make it... I've been wanting to meet you. I'm so excited — We're going to do your songs on July 11th!" (This was the first Carol Worthey had heard of this! Was Timur psychic or was he mistaking her for someone else?) Given that surprise opportunity, Carol knew enough to nod smilingly in agreement.

Worthey woke up the very next morning with the words and melody of a song in tango rhythm, a portrait of Timur's edgy cabaret persona... "Monster Diva/sacred and profane us.../when you entertain us. Intimate and racy/slightly indigestible.../but oh so tasty." Since the contrast of Timur on stage and Timur in person was so distinct, Carol devised the end of the song to reveal the "clown taking off his makeup": "Monster Diva, tell us you believe a/person can be real/and feel what you feel/and never hide behind glitter/or pose on a litter/of pride and lost passion:/It's no longer in fashion/to be anything else.../but yourself." The lyrics tumbled out that morning and in the next few days, the composer created a work designed to be a theatrical Signature Piece for this amazing performer, with piano accompaniment to start. This is to be arranged for his Dime Museum band. "Timur and The Dime Museum" will premiere "Monster Diva" in its full band version on December 9th, 2010 at Emeritus College, Santa Monica, California. This is a show you don't want to miss!

And what of the second song? Taking to heart Timur's words that he would sing several of her songs on July 11th, Carol dusted off an old poem-song that had never been fully written down, "Tears on Velvet." This second song, about a romance-gone-dead, mixes elements of a Renaissance song with contemporary harmonies. It makes striking use of Timur's wide range from his expressive baritone to his tender falsetto.

Carol created the cover artwork after arranging and notating the scores for both songs.

And so it was that the Premiere of "Monster Diva" and "Tears on Velvet" did indeed take place on July 11th, 2010 (as Timur had prophesied) at the cordial Beverly Hills home of fellow composer Deon Nielsen Price in her continuing series "Steinway Concerts in The Canyon." Pianist Mary Au accompanied the varied program to perfection on the sonorous new Steinway piano in the Great Room. The concert featured works by many contemporary composers, most of whom attended: Adrienne Albert , Lera Auerbach , Daniel Corral , John Frantzen , David Lefkowitz , Deon Nielsen Price , Tobias Picker (with a solo piano work) and Carol Worthey . (All but Lera Auerbach and Tobias Picker were there to accept enthusiastic applause.)

How did the audience react to Timur's "Monster Diva" ? To say it was an instant hit is an understatement. The room came alive, cheers, ovations. Carol Worthey may often dream her lyrics and music during sleep — but this performance was a composer's dream!

Print Production

Painter Carol Worthey takes care to personally supervise the making of each of her limited edition fine art prints to ensure that it is exact in every detail to the original painting.  Here we see Master Photographer / Printmaker Errol Higgins and Carol Worthey inspecting a print of "Out for A Walk" (on the table) for an East Coast Collector.  After the print is deemed exact in every way, Carol carefully signs and numbers it on the back to authenticate it.  Then the paint is allowed to cure for a day, after which it is glazed and allowed to dry for a second day.  The print is then sent to be stretched on a wood frame and a custom shipping box is created to ensure the artwork arrives in perfect shape.

This particular collector has also purchased the framed original of "Tuscany: Laundry Day", one of Carol's personal favorite paintings.

If you would love to own a limited edition print of "Tuscany: Laundry Day" , "Out for A Walk" or any other original or print, please contact us by clicking here or visit us at www.TheTranquilMoment.com

Timur Bekbosunov

Timur and The Dime Museum

Carol Worthey was electrified by the performance of renowned operatic tenor Timur Bekbosunov and his band in "Timur and The Dime Museum", part of the ALOUD Series at the Mark Taper Auditorium inside Los Angeles Central Library, a show that gave new bite and aliveness to the "cabaret" feel with songs that spanned from Kurt Weill to Nine Inch Nails.   Backed up by a band consisting of accordion, bass saxophone, viola, violin, acoustic bass, and Carol's friend virtuoso pianist Mary Au on Toy Piano, Timur gave a breathtaking performance sporting outrageous costumes (and occasional falsetto — his range is impressive) to the cheering and packed house!

As added serendipity to the evening, Carol ended up sitting in between two performers who had worked with Timur, professional violist Carolyn Corazo and coloratura soprano Michelle Bourque .  Afterwards, Timur welcomed his admirers and colleagues with his genuinely nice and easy-going personality, so in contrast to his mesmerizing dramatic presence on stage.  Is it any wonder people throng to his shows?

This is what Carol Worthey wrote to Timur Bekbosunov in a note:

"Loved your electric/eclectic performance last night at the Library!  I woke up at dawn totally inspired and energized with a new song!  You truly are riveting and engaging and span the panorama of emotions — a great showman, an outstanding singer and a truly creative artist with uncanny charisma and tongue-in-cheek humor to boot — the Dime Museum band, the outfits and the dancers were the perfect touch!  WOW now stands for 'Watch Out World', Timur is here!"

The Huntington Gardens

The Garden of Flowing Fragrance!

Pianist and Collaborative Artist Mary Au delivered a delightful "East Meets West" illustrated lecture and concert at the Visitors Pavilion by the gorgeous new Chinese Garden at Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. The music included works by Composers Adrienne Albert , Chen Yi , Deon Nielsen Price , Zhou Tian and Carol Worthey 's "Jade Flute in Lo-Yang" , all of whom (except Chen Yi) were present. Mary enlightened the appreciative audience on the history and defining characteristics of these two vast musical traditions and how composers today are working to meld the best of both worlds to create evocative and stirring works. She pointed out that it is the composers' intent is to do honor to the unique qualities of Eastern and Western music, while showing that as human beings we have more in common that we have to divide us. It was an inspiring evening in a beautiful setting.

Wedding Joy!

Carol Worthey adores her beautiful, generous, sweet and talented daughter Megan Worthey and her caring and attentive groom, Nibbs (Nabill or Billy) Mourad . The two have been a team for many a year and it was a special delight to know that their love (which has weathered the storms of life and gathered strength and loyalty through the years) would be officially recognized as Husband and Wife. So on May 15th, 2010 the two were joined. Carol followed tradition by crying buckets of tears during the ceremony, but managed to avoid severe dehydration... her waterproof makeup stayed intact through some miracle of modern engineering.

Here you see the magnificent beauty Megan Worthey-Mourad exuding the glow of this happy moment, dressed in classic elegance. Isn't she radiant?! (Carol says that Megan is a beauty inside and out. Case in point: "Mom" was treated like a Queen, with professional hair, makeup, manicure and pedicure.)

Without a doubt this was the most beautiful wedding Carol has ever been to, with every detail thought out to perfection: Lush colors of purple, lilac, green and taupe, the gracious garden setting, the magnificent flower arrangements by a gifted floral designer, the scrumptious feast, the special tree laden with festoons of orchids and greenery — and most of all the love shining in the air all about! The couple was wed under the symbolic "tree of life", the same tree that had graced their invitation.

You can see Carol decked out in her most beautiful finery for the occasion, just as she emerged from her home to go to the grand event!

Carol took a leaving picture of her fabulous husband Ray Korns , handsome as ever in his Glen Plaid suit, just before going to the wedding.

Also, here is Carol, glowing, before the ceremony had begun.

How wonderful it is to be with family at such a joyous occasion! It was an unforgettable day!
