Percussion takes the lead in this concert tracing the connections between music and the work of Alexander Calder. Influenced by his friend Edgard Varèse, the French composer and naturalized American, Calder discovered in himself a fascination for sound structures. Conversely, composers such as John Cage and Earle Brown were inspired by Calder’s artistic approach and creativity.


Works by Taylor BROOK, Earle BROWN,
John CAGE, Frederik GRAN, Daniel MORPHY,
and Edgard VARÈSE.
