First Fridays with Robert Black
December 3, 2021 at 12 noon ET
PROGRAM – “Strange Places”
Michael Gordon – Paint It Black (1988/91)
John Luther Adams – Three High Places (2017)
From the gritty attitude and harsh sonic energy of the punk underworld to a trippy inner-mind meditation exploring the crisp, borealis purity of the Alaskan wilderness, First Fridays with Robert Black takes us on a sonic journey to strange and beautiful places. Compositions by Michael Gordon and John Luther Adams pilot our aural explorations.
First Fridays with Robert Black is a monthly series of virtual mini-concerts featuring brand-spanking new, recently new, and kind of new music for solo double bass – streaming from his home studio in Hartford, Connecticut, at noon (EST). Whether you’re having your morning coffee in Los Angeles, or lunch in New York, or that first glass of wine in Paris, or a late supper in Tashkent, tune in for some cool and compelling music.
This is a free concert! But please consider purchasing a ticket just the same. Doing so will help us to do more performances, pay more players, commission more composers, and share more music worldwide.
