Flux Quartet II

Flux Quartet II Online

 Watch the event on the Library of Congress YouTube channel.

Flux is known for creating projects of unique vision that defy aesthetic categorization. Writing in  The New York Times, the criticSteve Smith calls the quartet “an intrepid ensemble devoted to illuminating the pricklier corners of the contemporary repertory.” This concert features a few remarkable, sometimes provocative works from several of those corners, music to invigorate and intrigue. Pianist Cory Smythe will join violinist Tom Chiu in a Library commission by Muhal Richard Abrams, co-founder of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), and another highlight is the third quartet of iconoclast and visionary Conlon Nancarrow.
