James Tenney at 70

James Tenney at 70

With Montreal's Bozzini Quartet

A retrospective of works by composer and CalArts faculty member James Tenney, featuring Montreal's Bozzini Quartet, which has toured these works to numerous international venues. Tenney was once called "the most famous unknown composer in America" based on his underground reputation for works composed in the 1960s and '70s. In recent years his music, beautiful sounds arising from unusual tunings and process-based perceptual transformations, is increasingly heard in Europe. Among the works played are Koan, both solo violin (1971) and string quartet (1984) versions; Stochastic String Quartet (1963); Harmonium #5 (1978); and Cognate Canons (1993). Guest artists to be announced.
