Flux Quartet Concert II with Donal Fox
Tom Chiu and Conrad Harris, violinsMax Mandel, violaFelix Fan, cellowith Donal Fox, piano
ABOUT THIS CONCERTExperience a pair of exhilarating concerts by “one of the most fearless and important new-music ensembles around” (San Francisco Chronicle). With a repertoire highlighted by over 100 premieres, Flux displays impressive versatility across an arresting spectrum of music, leading to unconventional collaborations: soundtracks for 3-D films with digital collective The Openended Group; recording a fully notated composition by avant balloonist Judy Dunaway; and performing Béla Bartók’s String Quartet no. 5 as the onstage band for a new Pam Tanowitz ballet.
These are concerts to invigorate and intrigue: on Friday evening, a program leaning toward experimental jazz features saxophonist and composer, painter and poet Oliver Lake as guest artist. Just a few hours later, come back for an afternoon of 20th century iconoclasts and visionaries, including Nancarrow and Scelsi.
