Library Late: Flux Quartet Concert I with Oliver Lake and Donal Fox

Max Mandel, viola

Felix Fan, cello
with Oliver Lake, saxophone and Donal Fox, piano


ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Experience 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.
