As one of the featured composers in the Tanglewood Music Center’s 2014 Festival of Contemporary Music, Oh’s 2008 work for percussion quartet, Canonic Phase, will be performed along with works by Jacob Druckman and John Harbison. One of Oh’s many works for percussion, this 11′ quartet explores the ideas between canons and timbral transformations while weaving inspiration from traditional Korean instruments with found objects into organically complex music. Using a meticulously chosen arsenal of percussion instruments decided by the players themselves, the resultant sound world is always a fresh and uniquely vibrant aspect to the work.
Thursday July 17, 8pm, Ozawa Hall, Lenox, MA
