REDCAT: For 60 years, Christian Wolff has been at the center of composing’s avant-garde, working alongside such figures as John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Cornelius Cardew. In these two nights of exceptional performances, Wolff pays tribute to fellow great Elliott Carter with a work played by the Formalist Quartet, followed by a world premiere of Nick Deyoe’s Lullaby 3, in the spirit of Wolff’s musical experimentation and featuring the Formalist Quartet with cellist Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick. A second don’t-miss evening of Wolff’s groundbreaking music is curated by renowned composer Michael Pisaro and includes the compelling and unique Changing The System (1974) and John Heartfield (2003), as well as the touching Trio V for James Tenney (2006), all heard for the first time on the West Coast.
