Ensemble 20/21: Portrait of Alvin Singleton

Eight soloists perform composer in residence Alvin Singleton's eight-part masterpiece Argoru, whose title comes from the Ghanaian Twi language and means "to play." Singleton composed this kaleidoscopic work for eight instruments over a period of more than 30 years. Delight in the joyful juxtaposition of flute, piano, vibraphone, and more in this spirited collection of pieces.
