EMPAC Presents:
Music of Helmut Lachenmann
Saturday, March 27
Helmut Lachenmann is one of Europe’s most influential living composers, whose music uses an iconoclastic vocabulary of instrumental sounds, recombined to create imaginary timbres. The result can be uncanny: Imagine a string quartet able to sound like a car crash. This demanding, imaginative music will come alive in a concert by SIGNAL, one of the most exciting chamber orchestras playing in America today, and the JACK Quartet, with Lachenmann himself performing on solo piano.

The concert will be held in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center Concert Hall. 8 p.m. Tickets are $15/10/5. For more information, go to the EMPAC Web site at www.empac.rpi.edu or call 276-3921.
