MULTIPLE MODERNISMS is the opening show in a year of fierce and fabulous collaborations. We're really excited to have Matthew Levy of the Prism Saxophone Quartet suiting up with us for the gig. These collabs give us the opportunity to work with people we admire and respect (Matt, then Magnus Lindberg 1/23/12, Paula Robison 3/4/12!) and stretch out into new repertoire. Both Steve Beck (piano) and Matt Levy (sax) are performing Milton Babbitt's "Whirled Series" for the first time. This is what Steve says:
"Rehearsing Whirled Series with Matt- what a great pleasure! Although we live in two different cities, we've managed to carve out a good amount of time for it. I'm pleased to report that it's not as hard to put together as some of the other Babbitt duos I've played (I remember Sextets being particularly vexing). Or maybe it's just that I'm getting experienced at all the ins and outs."
I hope you'll join us on 10/30 for this hot show!
