New Sounds Live: Bobby Previte & So Percussion

Saturday, August 31, 2013

From the New Sounds Live Concert Series, we'll hear part of Bobby Previte's "Terminals," a set of five pocket concertos for five different soloists and orchestra, which had its premiere exactly one month ago tonight at Merkin Hall as part of the closing concert of the Ecstatic Music Festival.  So Percussion is the "orchestra" for these works, which left space for the soloists to bring their own improvising voices to the work — voices that Previte knows well from years of collaboration with each.

We'll hear parts of Terminals 3, with Zeena Parkins, Terminals 1, with Jen Shyu and Terminals 5, with John Medeski.
