counter)induction: Futures Past (Corcoran Music Festival)

  • GWU: Hammer Auditorium 500 17th St. NW Washington, DC USA (map)

Now in its 20th year of virtuosic performances and daring programming, the composer/performer collective counter)induction is an established force of excellence in contemporary music. Featuring works by Brittany J. Green, Mark Rimple, Mario Davidovsky, Ryan Streber and Kyle Bartlett, the concert posits a deep view of the contemporary, of the diversity of humanisms: the meditative suspensions of the medieval mass, the heroic virtuosity of Romanticism, the courtly elegance of the Renaissance court, and a meditation on the severity and elegance of the first music of the Paleolithic.

Also presented will be works and performances by Corcoran professors Douglas Boyce and Ning Yu.
