The wonderful SWR orchestra of Baden-Baden and Freiburg will be performing two concerts of Ben Johnston’s music in April:
They will be performing an ambitious program for the Composer’s Portrait of Ben Johnston, including European and World Premieres. The program features: Septet, Octet, String Quartet #9, Duo for Flute and String Bass, and Duo for Two Violins. The program will be recorded for later broadcast on SWR2, one of the best and most progressive radio stations in Germany.
Even better news is that Ben Johnston will be in attendance for the concert. I will be there to document the events. We look forward to seeing many of our colleagues and lovers of new music at the concert. More to come on the events and pieces being featured.
