Overview

Experience an eclectic fusion of contemporary compositions, curated by Jimmy López Bellido, “one of the hottest contemporary musical forces around” (Arts Atlanta). Delve into two of his works with La Caresse du Couteau, based on the enneagram, and Guardian of the Horizon, a metaphor for the journey of the soul to the afterlife guarded by the Sphinx. In celebration of Pierre Boulez’s centenary, the program features his Domaines, a key work of the 20th century for solo clarinet. Quinn Mason’s dynamic Weapon Wheel, with its unusual use of three bass drums, and Adam Schoenberg’s poignant Reflecting Light complete the program.
