World Premieres: Faculty Composers

March 19, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm

Free

PRISM presents an enticing program of world premieres of new saxophone quartets by UPenn faculty members: Goddard Lieberson and Guggenhiem Fellow James Primosch; Pew and Guggenhiem Fellow Anna Weesner; and Jay Reise, whose work has been supported by the Fromm Foundation and National Endowment for the Arts. The program also includes a new work by UPenn alumna Kyle Bartlett, of counter)induction fame; Ben Hjertmann, winner of the 2014 Barlow Prize; and Jane Lange, winner of the PRISM/Walden School Commissioning Award.

Primosch’s new work, scored for sax quartet and piano, will feature guest artist Marilyn Nonken, hailed by The Cleveland Plain Dealer as “a supreme interpreter of new music who blends audacity with sensitivity.”
