On Tuesday, March 26th, Attacca String Quartet celebrates the release of their Azica CD of the complete quartets of John Adams (California John, not Alaska John), with a 7:30 PM show at Le Poisson Rouge. Doors open at 6:30pm. Tickets $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
The program includes two of the three works for quartet that JCA has composed to date: the vernacular music chameleon swirl of John’s Book of Alleged Dances and the more overtly minimal String Quartet. The third work from the disc, the brief and punchy Fellow Traveller, isn’t listed as part of the LPR bill. I smell an encore!
