Email from Wayne Horvitz about this performance this Wednesday, November 4:

Dear Seattle Friends,

If you come to one concert of mine this year, or even the next, or the one after that, please come on Wednesday November 4th to the Nordstrom Recital Hall for a very special performance of my chamber music.

(1) The center piece of the evening will be my piece for string quartet plus improvising soloist entitled These Hills of Glory. The quartet will be performed by the fantastic odeonquartet featuring members of the Seattle Symphony. The featured soloist will be the fabulous Carla Kihlstedt on violin; Carla is an incredible violinist by any standards and is all the more unique for her personal voice as an improviser. Carla often performs with Tin Hat, Fred Frith, John Zorn, and her own bands including Two Foot Yard and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, among others. If youve never heard Carla play, you shouldnt miss this chance.

(2) As exciting for me is the premier of my newest work - For Piano Alone, In Four Parts. The piece will be performed by pianist Cristina Valdes. Writing for and working with Cristina on this piece has been the highlight of my musical year.

(3) Also to be premiered in this concert and performed by odeonquartet will be Robin Holcombs beautiful Carry Over for string quartet.

(4) Last but certainly not least, a number of my other chamber works will be performed by the above mentioned musicians, as well as two members of The Seattle Chamber Players - Laurie DeLuca on clarinet and Paul Taub on flute.

Presented by the Seattle Symphony in collaboration with Earshot Jazz this concert represents an opportunity to show presenters and community alike that there exists both strong interest and support for music that falls outside of the defined boundaries of either jazz or classical music.

If you have a student ID, there are student rush tickets. If you are under 18, there are Teen Tix also available that are quite inexpensive. For more information, please see the links below. Hope to see you there!
