Summary

Have you heard the old saying: Beware of Greeks bearing gifts? Not this time! Open your ears! The most inventive percussion ensemble in America performs one of the giant works of the 20th century. Pleiades by Greek composer Iannis Xenakis is a timeless, polyrhythmic composition considered to be a masterpiece and test of will for those who dare undertake it in performance. Joining So¯ Percussion to complete the tour-de-force experience will be Todd Meehan and Douglas Perkins. Bonus points awarded for concert ingenuity: also on the program is Proximity by Turkish composer Cenk Ergün, whose use of electronic tonalities is otherworldly
