Point Counterpoint

Prelude Lecture by Kristi Brown Montesano · 6:30 PM · The JAI

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

Interdependent yet independent, these selections explore the musical concept of counterpoint—the relationship between two or more musical lines or voices, used by composers spanning the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and 20th Century. The evening includes the world première of a multimedia version of Steve Reich’s New York Counterpoint, commissioned by La Jolla Music Society for SummerFest, the Synergy Initiative, and Lincoln Center, which will feature clarinetists from all of the Lincoln Center performing ensembles.
