NTQ will take the stage of LeFrak Concert Hall at the Aaron Copland School of Music, for the premiere of two new works for saxophone quartet by Queens-based composers Luke Schwartz and Pat Muchmore. Continuing our effort to champion the works of New York-based composers, we will present two highly contrasting pieces, each sounding within a contemporary musical language.
Muchmore’s Hyperoperator3 for two tenor and two baritone saxophones evokes a voluminous power full of rhythmic complexity and intensity while Schwartz’s Open Link in New Tab, for quartet + stereo playback, explores the beautiful texture of tonal improvisation with organic divergence. The hour-long program will be framed with works by Michael Djupstrom (Philadelphia), and Marcelo Lazcano (Chile/San Diego). This concert is presented by Queens College and is FREE and open to the public.
