CalArts, The Wild Beast and Mark Taper Courtyard
MUSIC: An exhilarating journey through familiar and evocatively new soundscapes of the seasons from different locations in the globe. We start in Italy with some of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, though this performance puts the familiar in a new light. Re-imagining the seasons' sounds continues in Buenos Aires with world-renowned tangos by Piazzolla, and nature soundscapes collected and composed upon in Vermont by Malcolm Goldstein. The concert closes with a visceral and intensely virtuosic performance tribute to the anniversary year of the shocking Rite of Spring: Stravinsky's masterpiece that caused a public riot at its first performance 100 years ago, slimmed down to a wind quintet, piano and percussion.
