Listening to Conlon Nancarrow w/ Nick Rich
August 10 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Conlon Nancarrow (1912-1997) devised some of the most imaginative, baffling, and explosive music of any American composer. Written largely for mechanical player piano, his works explore the limits of complexity and density, often employing intricate canons and irrational tempo relationships. At the same time, his musical language draws heavily on jazz and blues, bursting with an endless sense of humor and melodic invention. Join local composer Nick Rich for a discussion of this extraordinary musical mind and a guided listening of his work.
