Small Packages #2: Ligeti’s Chamber Concerto

Date: Saturday, January 23, 2010
Location: San Francisco Conservatory of Music
Description:
sfSound performs György Ligeti’s stunning “Chamber Concerto” for 13 instruments alongside new short works written for sfSound by ten local composers. Coming from the many diverse bay area scenes, these musicians were commissioned to create new pieces for this concert inspired by and/or contrasting with Ligeti’s monumental disquisition on sound and texture.

In case you missed it
or would like to hear it again,
sfSound’s “small packages” concert from last week is up on sfSoundRadio.
