Soundings: New Music at the Nasher

In Return for My Song : Tonalities At Once Ancient and New

April 24, 2015
7:30 pm

The Nasher Sculpture Center’s fifth anniversary season of the critically acclaimed Soundings music series continues under the artistic direction of Seth Knopp.

Individual tickets for the April 24 concert are on sale now.

Music from Yellow Barn: Works for String Quartet and Percussion by Bach, Beethoven, Berio, Rzewski, Tan Dun, and Wood

The play of tension and release is a vitally important element in our experience of music and tonality, the hierarchical relationship between pitches or harmonies, is one framework that guides us. Much is asked of an audience experiencing new work with sounds that are less familiar, but the ear is quick and can adapt when context is there to guide us.

Percussionist Ian Rosenbaum and the Parker String Quartet lead us on a sonic adventure through tonalities at once ancient and new.
