A New Sounds Live co-presentation hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer
Presented by Kaufman Music Center at Merkin Concert Hall
Three of today’s top contemporary composer/performers join forces to build on previous collaborations and premiere a new work. It’s a trio unlike any other – a combination of the effusive, white-hot power of America’s premier string quartet ETHEL; raw, emotionally charged picking and pounding of guitarist Kaki King; and complex harmonies and structures of composer/guitarist/violist John King. This eclectic program includes world premieres written both individually and collaboratively, as well as some existing pieces, peppered by guitars, dobros, banjos and ouds.
