Ecotone: Selected Works for Solo Instruments

An ecotone is an area of transition between two environments. This concert features a selection of solo instrumental and vocal compositions that combine virtuosic technique with theatrical performance. From the groundbreaking Ursonate for solo speaker by Kurt Schwitters to Luciano Berio‚Äôs Sequenza V for trombone, each work transforms the musician into a dramatic and dynamic character on stage.
