Joby Talbot String Quartet No.1
Mason Bates Rough Math
Judd Greenstein Clearing, Dawn, Dance
Caroline Shaw Entr’acte
Michael Daugherty Flamingo
Begin your weekend with an hour of daring music that stops you in your tracks. Continuing from the previous day’s #ConcertLab Rush Hour, we perform a selection of propulsive chamber music by some of the most inventive composers of the moment.
Mason Bates mixes string quartet with jagged electronic beats in Rough Math, while Michael Daugherty’s Flamingo presents a flamenco/pop-culture mashup that zips from Iowa to Florida. Staring at a crisp spring sky inspired Joby Talbot’s string quartet, and musicians are given the chance to flaunt their individual personalities in Judd Greenstein’s Clearing, Dawn, Dance.
No booking required, just turn up.
