1×1, 3×4, 1×5

This program features works by by two counter)induction composers and two younger rising composers from Europe. Spatial elements and group dynamics are explored as the complete program is performed attacca, without interruption or pause; a solo clarinet envelops the ensemble, moving to off and on stage, as a quartet ferociously responds, till tensions are resolved and a quintet restores unity.

  • Medoza, Nebelsplitter
  • Scelsi, Tre Pezzi For E flat
  • Boyce, Piano Quartet #1
  • Streber, new work
