Concerts from the Library of Congress
Saturday, October 10, 2015 – 8:00pm (Coolidge Auditorium)
Join us as we launch our exciting anniversary season with one of America’s bold new music ensembles, yarn|wire. This “mesmerizing” (The New York Times) quartet of two pianists and two percussionists explores intriguing repertoire by twentieth-century master composer Luciano Berio, as well as works by some leading contemporary composers. They make their Coolidge Auditorium debut fresh off of a major collaboration with songwriter Sufjan Stevens, and appearances at the Edinburgh International Festival, the Barbican, and the Lincoln Center Festival. FREE tickets required.
