Ancia Saxophone Quartet: Music of our Time
The Ancia Saxophone Quartet will present a free concert at the Weisman Art Museum, on the campus of the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis, at 333 East River Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55455 on Sunday, May 12, 2019 at 4:00 pm. The concert will feature the works of living composers who have helped create the musical fabric of the Twin Cities. The program will include Confluence, written for Ancia by Grammy Award-winner and Minnesota resident Libby Larsen; two movements from Short Stories by Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon, which the group commissioned and premiered in Minnesota; and Cordoba, by jazz pianist and Minneapolis-based composer Laura Caviani. Additionally, audiences will hear Dark Waters by Christopher Rutkowski, premiered recently by Ancia in Minneapolis, and two pieces selected by Ancia from the American Composers Forum’s national call for scores for the 2017 Minneapolis ACF Showcase Concert: Robin McLaughlin’s On This Day and Steven Snowden’s Speed Studies.
