CUBE Ensemble, with guest composer Robert D. Morris
Location: The Renaissance Society
In addition to an outstanding bill of works by Robert D. Morris (U.S.), Stefan Wolpe (U.S.), Shulamit Ran (born Israel, living in U.S.) and Ruth Lomon (born Canada, living in U.S.), we are pleased to have present the Senior Eastman School of Music Professor of Composition, Robert D. Morris. Morris has bridged an important gap between the rigorously academic and the highly experimental. He has composed over 100 works. Much of his output from the 1970s is influenced by non-Western music and uses structural principles from Arabic, Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, and early Western musics.
In its 17th season, Cube is one of the longest-lived and well-respected contemporary chamber music ensembles in Chicago. Led by instrumentalist/composers Patricia Morehead and Janice Misurell-Mitchell, the group is known for its eclectic taste and the wide variety of its repertoire, from the most challenging electroacoustic to the most intricate and subtle chamber works.
