“Breaking Ground” with Marc Vallon and Sound Out Loud

October 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

A celebration of ground breaking works by composers from the 17th, 19th, 20th and 21th centuries.

Music by Michelangelo Rossi, Alexander Scriabin, Iannis Xenakis, John Cage, Helmut Lachenmann, and Morton Feldman.

Composers of all periods have continually explored new musical territories, looked for new paths, and tried, through groundbreaking works, to launch new courses of musical expression. This program offers the public pieces that have, in their time, provided a starting point to new musical routes, just as the first stroke of a shovel is the birth of a new building and a new era.
