Le Marteau sans Maître, this Thursday night

Lately I've been working hard with these new music superheroes at left, plus a few others, to prepare Pierre Boulez's beguiling, tangly masterpiece, Le Marteau sans Maître.  It's such a pleasure,  sinking my teeth into this piece a second time, and at every rehearsal I thank my lucky stars to live in one of the few cities where a bunch of young musicians who have never played as an ensemble before, can convincingly pull this piece off in just a handful of rehearsals. (they look pretty good doing it, too, don't you think?) 

Spectrum at 9pm, Tickets $15, including a glass or two of wine.
