AB West 8+1: Braxton75
Programmed by Alix Blevins
The AB West 8+1 ensemble performs the music of one of the most revered figures in contemporary music, Anthony Braxton. Directed by longtime Braxton collaborator Chris Jonas, the ensemble features members of key Bay Area new music ensembles Del Sol String Quartet and Goggle Sax Quartet (with Dan Plonsey, Cory Wright, Chris Jonas, and Randy McKean), and double-bassist Lisa Mezzacappa. This event is part of Braxton75, a two-year initiative of the Tri-Centric Foundation celebrating the composer’s seventy-fifth birthday.
