Bang on a Can presents First Fridays with Robert Black
Live | October 2. 2020 | 12pm (noon) EDT

Hans Werner Henze: S. Biagio 9 Agosto ore 1207 (1977)
Peter Velikonja: Uncle (1990)

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 my home studio in Hartford, Connecticut, the October 2, noon (EDT) program will include the dark, somber, brooding lyricism of Hans Werner Henze’s S. Biagio 9 Agosto Ore 1207 contrasted with the bright, mesmerizing, resonant patterns of Peter Velikonja’s Uncle.  So, 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.
