On Wednesday and Thursday, March 28 and 29, Tom's Place presents
Two evenings of music by composer Barney Childs
Childs (short bio here: http://en.wikiped...)
was a composer and poet who championed new music throughout the
last half of the 20th century. His compositions often included
improvisation and indeterminate structures, though many are fully
notated pieces designed to challenge virtuoso players, such as
bassist Bertram Turetzky. As a teacher and mentor at the University
of Redlands, his students went on to found Cold Blue records, the
ROVA Saxophone Quartet, and Rastascan Records.
The performers in this mini-festival include clarinetist Phil
Rehfeldt, pianist Jim Fox, ROVA's Jon Raskin on alto sax, Dave Hatt
on piano, Marty Walker on clarinet, Richard Worn on bass, and William
Benjamin on oboe.
Hear "Sonata for Bass Alone", written for Bertram Turetzky in 1960.
Experience Harold Budd's "Candy Apple Revision". Thrill to works
for oboe trio, tuba and piano, and clarinet and friend.
This is a rare opportunity to hear classic American works in the
grand experimental tradition. and
encyclopedias and a poetry text, The Poetry-I Book.
