Our final concert of the 2004 summer sfSoundSeries presents a variety of approaches to contemporary music:
Iannis Xenakis' Epei (for english horn, clarinet, trumpet, 2 trombones and double bass) uses precise notation to create a dense, raucous music. Freedom and organization collide in Christopher Burns' Maxwell's Demon, with a conductor providing tightly scripted time-lengths to a group of improvising musicians. Swiss composer Klaus Huber's Schattenblätter for piano and clarinet provides a moment of reflection with a more traditional approach. Continuing our ongoing reinterpretation project, Morton Feldman's Three Voices is reworked into a new realization for 6 instruments.
Plus, we present two world premieres: a new trombone solo by Japanese-German composer Shigeru Kan-no performed by Jennifer Baker
and a new collaboratively-composed improvisational work by the sfSoundGroup.
