3 String Quartets

3 String Quartets:
Yusef Lateef, John Zorn and George Crumb

CalArts New Century Players at The Creative Music Festival

Three different configurations of the New Century Players perform three exacting, formally beautiful string quartets: the world premiere of String Quartet No. 1 by the Grammy Award winning composer and woodwind virtuoso Yusef Lateef; the alchemy and magic-inspired Necronomicon by pioneer John Zorn; and the darkly surreal Black Angels (Images I): Thirteen Images from the Dark Land by modern innovator George Crumb.

John Zorn and Yusef Lateef will be present for these events; however, they will not be performing.

Meet Yusef Lateef at a pre-concert talk at 7p.m.

Co-presented with the Los Angeles Music Studio. Funded in part through Meet The Composer¹s Creative Connections Program with the support of ASCAP Foundation, Copland Fund, Ford Foundation, Virgil Thomson Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
