Brightwork opens their spring season with a concert featuring works by Chris Cerrone, John Luther Adams, Panayiotis Kokoras, and Benjamin Broening. They will also be premiering a new work by Tom Flaherty co-comissioned by the group and People Inside Electronics.
Brightwork newmusic is a classical new music sextet based in Los Angeles, California. A flexible and fearless group of world-class musicians, Brightwork consists of piano, violin, cello, flute, clarinet, percussion (an instrumentation which is often called "Pierrot + percussion," and which is to modern chamber music what the string quartet was to earlier centuries), and champions the best of the music that's being written today, while continuing to play the classics of "new" music from the last hundred years.
We play the music we love, whether this is one of our favorite masterworks of the 20th century, or the latest dazzling score from a composer whose music we just discovered. What the listener can expect at a Brightwork concertat the very leastis exciting, emotionally engaging music presented in state-of-the-art performances. Brightwork seeks to draw the audience into the creative process.
