UPCOMING EVENT:
ANDY AKIHO & THE SEBASTIANS
Andy Akiho & The Sebastians
Monday, April 25, 2016 at 7:30 pm

This intriguing double bill juxtaposes music by the dynamic young composer Andy Akiho with a set of Baroque masterpieces, performed by the Sebastians (“everywhere sharp-edged and engaging” – The New York Times). The piquant counterpoint of such works as Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, which anchors the Sebastians’ program, is echoed by the keen sense of line in Akiho’s masterful LIgNEouS for string quartet and marimba. Akiho’s music, praised by the Times as “mold-breaking” and “vital,” features a cadre of today’s finest chamber musicians.
