An intriguing program presented by Bowerbird here in Philly this weekend: Xavier Le Roy is a choreographer interested in the relationship between not just music and movement, but specifically musical performance and movement. For this program he works with music by Lachenmann, performed by members of Klangforum Wien. The music alone, played by an important ensemble, makes this of interest.
The JACK string quartet is coming to the Icebox at Philadelphia’s Crane Arts Building to play a concert featuring music by Lachenmann, Julia Wolfe, and Gregory Spears, whose piece was inspired by his work as composer-in-residence at Buttonwood Psychiatric Hospital. The show will be at 8:00 pm on November 20. (JACKs at left.)
