Friday Night Live! Piano Duo X88: Outer Limits

Experience the U.S. premiere of Outer Limits, a new commissioned program by four diverse composers working with music in different directions. The evening includes composers Tristan Perich (USA), Nik Bärtsch (Switzerland), Pete Harden(UK/The Netherlands), and Vanessa Lann (USA/The Netherlands).

Perich’s work features two dueling pianos juxtaposed against a web of 1-bit electronics. Nik Bärtsch has composed a three movement work conjuring deep rhythmic grooves and virtuosic unison licks with mesmerizing suspension. Pete Harden’s work is an improvised map of sounds, based off of butterfly migration patterns, and Vanessa Lann will create a theatrical work with poetry and movement.

Performances begin at 7 & 8:30 p.m.
