VLN & VLA, featuring Malcolm Goldstein

“[Goldstein makes] true revolutionary music whose blues and folk-inflected language remains accessible to all." —The Wire

"Andrew Tholl is ’vigorously virtuosic.’ " —Los Angeles Times

World premieres

In an epic concert of music for solo, ensemble and concerto violin and viola, internationally acclaimed string musicians perform an array of new, recent and older works. Malcolm Goldstein, whose sounding improvisations have received accolades worldwide for extending the range of the violin’s tonal qualities and sound textures, reveals new dimensions of expressivity in a solo performance. Also on the program are celebrated CalArts viola and violin faculty Lorenz Gamma and Mark Menzies, as well as composer-to-watch Andrew Tholl, whose new concerto includes parts composed for turntable. The evening features music by Witold Lutoslawski, Heinrich Biber, Luciano Berio, and CalArts alum and recent Gaudeaumus competition-winner Andrew MacIntosh.
