Knee Plays from Einstein on the Beach

Ekmeles joins an all-star group including impresario and tenor Nick Hallett, composer Eve Beglarian, and Ethel violinist Mary Rowell to perform excerpts from Philip Glass’s Einstein on the Beach. The Knee Plays are hypnotic and pulsing, archetypical early minimalism. Texts for the singers alternate between numbers and fixed-do solf├Ęge syllables.

Program also includes Tom Johnson’s An Hour for Piano. More info available on Issue Project Room’s page for the event.
