Virtuosi at the Edge
The Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition, known for its collaboration between composers, conductors, and musicians, begins the season with an exciting performance by the resident Grossman Ensemble, soprano soloist Kristina Bachrach, and special guest artists. Conducted by one of the leading figures in modern music, Brad Lubman, the program includes Unsuk Chin’s gripping seven-movement work based on scenes from fairytales Akrostichon-Wortspiel, and Arlene Sierra’s energetic Ballistae, inspired by ancient artillery machinery. CCCC commissions of Brad Lubman and Ramon Lazkano receive world premieres.
Presented by the Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition in partnership with UChicago Presents.
