Michael Gordon & Mantra Percussion

Following appearances by David Lang and Julia Wolfe at recent editions of _Strings_, their sometime collaborator and Bang on a Can stablemate Michael Gordon – himself one of the most acclaimed composers working today – comes to the festival in 2019. Gordon’s music has been celebrated for its imaginative boldness and fusion of elements that incorporate classical minimalism, a punk-rock edge, and the risk-taking spirit of free jazz. His _Strings of Autumn_ concert will be an evening devoted to his work for smaller ensembles, featuring his iconic composition _Timber_ (for six percussionists, each playing a wooden simantra or 2×4 wooden plank) performed by the American ensemble Mantra Percussion, who originally co-commissioned the work and recorded it for album release. The programme also presents examples of Gordon’s work for string quartet: the pieces _Clouded Yellow,_ _Potassium,_ and _Exalted,_ originally written for Kronos Quartet, will be performed by one of the pre-eminent domestic ensembles, the Zemlinsky Quartet.
