ACM’s resident ensemble Palomar returns to the gorgeous Preston Bradley Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center for a concert of exciting works by a dynamic range of modern day composers. A highlight of the concert is Datura by Beijing composer Xiaogang Ye, written for ACM in 2006. “Datura is so much fun to play and so wonderfully evocative,” says flutist Alicia Poot. “Datura is a plant that can cause wild hallucinations and you can absolutely hear that in the music.”
Other works to be performed include Finnish composer Erkki Sven Tuur’s stunning Architectonics II for clarinet, cello and piano, Alex Shapiro’s emotionally fraught Unabashedly, Tim Corpus’ Bird in Space, originally composed for ACM’s Open House Chicago project and Mike McFerron’s Winter Solstice.
The concert is at 3:00 so there’s plenty of time to hear some music before the super bowl!
