Podcast and live radio collide as Open G Records and Access Contemporary Music team up for the final Late Night concert of 2017: an intimate portrait of Pulitzer Prize winning composer Steven Stucky.
Stucky was one of the country’s most prolific and most performed composers, a talented educator, esteemed mentor and an indispensible part of twentieth century classical music.
This concert is also the release of a new album from Open G Records featuring World Premiere recordings of Stucky's Piano Sonata, Violin Sonata, Piano Quintet, Piano Quartet and a Chorale written especially for pianist Xak Bjerken who performs on the album.
You'll hear the quintet and violin sonata live and we'll play a teaser of this stunningly well-recorded album as well. The program also features Horizon by Christopher Stark played by Chris Grymes and Jeremy Gill.
Tickets are $20, $15 for groups
80 N. 6th Street
