With three world premieres, including a Roscoe Mitchell/William Winant duet, and a David Tanenbaum guitar solo, this is sure to be a memorable evening. Cindy Cox and Roscoe Mitchell (who made his name as a jazz saxophonist with the Art Ensemble of Chicago before shifting his focus to chamber music composition) bring us three much-anticipated new works. Lee Hyla and Terry Riley take up the populist point of view with a boisterous, unpredictable collage of Polish folk music and an Iraq War protest piece played on the National Steel guitar.

Schubert’s heart-breakingly beautiful Cello Quintet, the favourite Desert Island Disc of many music lovers, crowns this line-up of brilliant and innovative musical delights. Ross Harris heard the NZSQ's ‘Goldberg Variations’ and "became obsessed” – his Variation 25 is the highly expressive result. The Bartok Dances are given a new twist with guitar accompaniment, and there could be dancing in the aisles to the Fandango from Boccherini's famous Quintet!

Stephen Harrison, cello

Four works of intensity and craftsmanship warm this winter concert. David Milnes and the players delve into a rarely performed masterpiece by Pierre Boulez and a smoldering work by Luca Francesconi, featuring new ensemble member David Tanenbaum on guitar. Boulez’s unusual composition, for flute, guitar, viola, three percussion and mezzo-soprano, is widely regarded as his first great work. Complementing the ensemble pieces are two cello solos that ponder life’s ephemeral nature.

There will be a pre-concert talk before the concert. Guests TBA.

Program:
Pierre Boulez, Le Marteau sans maître for mezzo-soprano, flute, guitar, viola and three percussion

Widely regarded as Boulez’s first masterpiece, this celebrated, rarely performed work uses familiar Western instruments to create Eastern sounds that would have been exotic to Boulez’s first audiences. Music Director David Milnes and the ensemble, along with guest mezzo-soprano Janna Baty, perform and discuss this piece in the beautifully designed and acoustically superb Presidio Interfaith Chapel.

This piece will be performed again on the following evening at Herbst Theatre as part of American Mosaic, a concert of American music.

About the piece:
Elliott Carter, who celebrates his 100th birthday this year, is widely regarded as one of America's greatest composers. In this piece, fast-moving mandolin lines and a soloistic guitar section (played by new ensemble member David Tanenbaum) interweave with the sounds of trumpet, trombone, harp and vibraphone. This unconventional mix of instruments gives the piece it's unique, glittering texture.

The Players:
Jeff Biancalana, trumpet; Hall Goff, trombone; David Tanenbaum, guitar; Paul Binkley, mandolin; Karen Gottlieb, harp; William Winant, vibraphone.
