A program of Chicago “firsts” including: Old Kings in Exile, a recent work by Australian composer Brett Dean, described as a “masterly achievement” (Daily Telegraph) and co-commissioned by the Nash Ensemble, the Australia Ensemble and eighth blackbird. Lei Liang’s work for saxophone quartet, performed by the pioneering Anubis Quartet, is “a 15-minute tour de force: a dense example of profound cross-culturalism.” (James Keller, Chamber Music magazine)
