Transient Canvas goes south!  In a collaborative concert with the wonderful new music organization Chamber Cartel, we will perform some of our Boston rep alongside works featuring bass clarinet and percussion with other instruments! We will premiere Daniel T Lewis' Sift as well as music of Curtis Hughes, Andy Vores, John Murphree, Rudolf Rojahn and Philippe Manoury.


"Unclassified"

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 8:00pm

Davis Square Theatre
255 Elm St
Somerville, MA

On the heels of a recent tour of the Southern United States, Transient Canvas returns to Boston with a program of old friends and new. "Unclassified" features world premieres by John McDonald, Tina Tallon, and Matthew Jaskot alongside works by Andy Vores, Les Thimmig, and Daniel T Lewis. An old favorite, Vores' Itch is a fast-paced tour de force that opens the concert with a bang. McDonald and Jaskot lend pianists' sensibilities to their works, while Tallon and Lewis explore the timbral possibilities of this odd instrumental pairing. Our duo is joined by oboist Elizabeth England and violinist Lilit Hartunian to end the program with Thimmig's Bluefire Crown III, which evokes the harmonic language of jazz and bebop.
