Miller Theater's 'Composer Portraits' Travel to Boston

Classic Arts News   Miller Theater's 'Composer Portraits' Travel to Boston
The Composer Portraits series, which has helped turn Columbia University's Miller Theatre into a major destination for contemporary music fans over the last five years, will visit Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum three times this season.

Each of the three performances repeats a program that has previously been seen at the Miller Theatre. On January 29 and 30, a chamber group with violinists Jennifer Choi and Jesse Mills, violist Richard O' Neill, cellist Fred Sherry, and pianist Stephen Drury performs chamber music by the saxophonist and composer John Zorn. The Pacific String Quartet plays rarely heard music by Nicolai Roslavets, a Ukrainian composer whose music was suppressed by Stalin, on February 26 and 27. On March 26 and 27, the group So Percussion plays Steve Reich's seminal Drumming and other works by the minimalist pioneer.

George Steel, the executive director of the Miller Theatere, will serve as host for the concerts and for post-concert receptions.
