PREMIERES: New Works for Saxophone Quartet

June 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$20 – $25

The intrepid PRISM Quartet presents an expansive program of extraordinary new works on June 10th at 8:00 PM at Settlement Music School located at 416 Queen Street in Philadelphia. The program features the world premiere of “Old Tune Renewed,” commissioned for PRISM by Harvard University’s Fromm Music Foundation from MacArthur Fellow Bright Sheng. Mr. Sheng describes the work as reimagining “a folk song from Northwestern China that spotlights the style and zest of folk singing, often taking place in open valleys.” The program includes of “Graffiti II” by Tomás Luis de Victoria Prize-winner Roberto Sierra. In the composer’s words, “Graffiti II” captures “graffiti’s immediacy and lyricism, but also its radical, aggressive, uncontained quality, a sense that the music, like the artwork, is spilling out of the frame.” Also on the program are world premieres of works by rising-star composers: winners of three PRISM Quartet commissioning awards: Jungyoon Wie, Flannery Cunningham, and Julian Hofstetter. Tickets are $25 for general admission, $20 for students/seniors (all fees included), and are available at www.prismquartet.com/concerts.
