Event Information

For this program, Sō Percussion expands the idea of what a performing quartet can do to such an extent that you might not even call it “percussion.” These new explorations take us from our very own Julia Wolfe “string quartet,” to clinking wine glasses, to Bryce Dessner’s new electric string instruments, to a hybrid piece of percussion and dance. 

Music for Pieces of Wood (1973), Steve Reich (b. 1936)
Forbidden Love (2019), Julia Wolfe (b. 1958)
Construction (2017), Susan Marshall (b. 1958)
Water, Wine, Brandy, Brine (2015), Viet Cuong (b. 1990)
Music for Wood and Strings (2013), Bryce Dessner (b. 1976)

This event is supported by a grant from New Music USA.
