Tuesdays @ Monk Space presents

Light is Calling

October 8, 2013

8:00 pm

In collaboration with Tuesdays@Monk Space we present the Lyris Quartet – Alyssa Park, Luke Maurer, Shalini Vijayan, and Timothy Loo – in an evening of new and classic music for strings and electronics. The program explores the rich sonc variety of the string quartet, from the lushest romantic swells to the most intricate counterpoint. Frances Whiteʼs a veil barely seen, inspired by the ancient Chinese elements, incorporates field recordings of water. Kurt Rohdeʼs Whoʼs There?re-imagines Hamlet, while in Tarantella Carbine Caroline Louise Miller simultaneously explores neo-romanticism, heavy metal, and experimental techno. Iconic trailblazing composer Paul Lansky takes a page from Beethoven, incorporating the pre-performance tune up into his trio As If, and Michael Gordon powerfully reacts to the events of September 11, 2001 withLight is Calling. Finally, the West Coast premiere of Judith Shatinʼs symphonic poem for string quartet, Elijahʼs Chariot, features all four members of the Lyris Quartet, with each instrument representing one wheel of the prophetʼs fiery conveyance to Heaven.
