John Luther Adams + Alex Ross / Kronos Quartet Performs “All The Rage”
October 26, 2010
This Thursday, October 28th is an exciting night for events related to The Reach Of Resonance.
For those of you in the Chicago area, excerpts from The Reach Of Resonance will be shown as part of a conversation between composer John Luther Adams and Alex Ross, music critic for The New Yorker (and Pulitzer Prize finalist author of “The Rest Is Noise”). The conversation will take place in Lutkin Hall at Northwestern University: http://www.pickstaiger.org/venues-and-seating/details/560-a-conversation-with-john-luther-adams-and-alex-ross
Also, this Thursday and Friday, Kronos Quartet will be performing Bob Ostertag’s moving transcription of a gay rights riot into a string quartet, titled “All The Rage,” at Yerba Buena Center For The Arts in San Francisco, for the first time in 15 years! A sequence in The Reach Of Resonance is devoted to this piece, so we’re very excited to announce a chance to see it live. An excerpt from RoR is being used by Kronos Quartet and Nonesuch Records to promote the concerts. The concert program will also include George Crumb’s mesmerizing milestone piece “Black Angels,” and the premiere of Iranian composer Sahba Aminikia’s String Quartet No. 3, commissioned by Kronos.
