Anomaly Concerto World Premiere - National Sawdust Brooklyn, NY | May 12, 2016

I am thrilled to be performing the world premiere of Anomaly Concerto for Percussion and String Orchestra with Norway’s fantastic 1B1 Orchestra at National Sawdust in Brooklyn next Thursday, May 12 at 7pm. The piece is a reimagined version of my String Quartet with percussion accompaniment, originally written for Kronos Quartet. The concerto reworks and condenses those 7 movements into a continuous piece that flows through a varied musical landscape, following the percussion soloist throughout. I will also be performing some solo works as a part of this upcoming show. I hope you’ll come out and join me for this exciting premiere of percussion and strings. - GK
