EMPAC Presents: Garth Knox
Saturday Nov. 14 at 8 p.m.
One the world’s few acknowledged virtuosos of the viola, Garth Knox is known for playing some of the most demanding music written for that instrument with elegance and dash. On Saturday, Nov. 14, he’ll also perform pieces for the viola d’amore, a period instrument with resonating strings mounted beneath its bowed ones. The program ranges from Tobias Hume’s 1605 “Pavane” to one of Knox’s own compositions from his CD Viola Spaces.

The evening’s highlight will be the world premiere of a new piece for viola d’amore and electronics by English composer James Dillon under a commission from the French band Art Zoyd. The artist will give a talk before the concert.

The performances will be held in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center Studio 2 beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15/$10/$5. For ticket information, go to www.empac.rpi.edu or call 276-3921.
