COMING UP AT OLD FIRST CONCERTS

“Featured on this program is the World Premiere performance by the Adorno Ensemble of Eric Lindsay’s 2010 Koussevitzky Award-winning work, So I Want To Write A Piece About John Cage. In Eric Lindsay’s words, ‘So I Want To Write A Piece About John Cage is not merely about the continuation of Cage’s ideas in an era so markedly different from 50 years ago, but moreover about the concept of influence, itself. In this case, my music is used as a singular example of a possible incarnation of Cagean philosophies, where the exploration of unfamiliar relationships of space and time are distinguishing characteristics.’”
