Contemporary music ensemble Gageego! and conductor Rei Munakata presents a program of both new and previous visionaries!

György Ligeti – who would turn 100 in 2022 – is celebrated with his marvelous Ten Pieces for Wind Quintet and Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007) with the iconic Zeitmasse, the piece that brought serialism into the temporal dimension. But it’s also a celebration of future pioneers such as Swedish composer Madeleine Isaksson and her ingeniously layered weave of sounds and temporal lines in the piece Sondes. The fourth and final piece is the extensive and meditative This is One Small Stone in an Entire City of Monuments I am Building For You by American composer Joseph Lake.
