ICP Orchestra On November 10, 2010, Ars Nova Workshop presented the Netherlands' Benjamin Herman Quartet in Philadelphia. For those who experienced their smoking set of Misha Mengelberg compositions, you likely noticed the camera crew. WHYY-TV’s On Canvas documented this rare performance, which will be premiering on the channel tonight at 10pm. If you missed the concert, be sure to tune in, and check their website for future airings. The preview below shows the band playing a Mengelberg tune called “Brozziman,” inspired by fiery German saxophonist Peter Brotzmann.

Bassist Ernst Glerum will be returning in a few months, when the Instant Composers Pool Orchestra storm Philadelphia for three nights of live music. Joining ICP founders Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink, the tentet will be performing at Christ Church Neighborhood House Theatre on April 1, 2, and 3. Single event and 3-Concert Passes are available now.
