Weis Center Atrium
Celebrating America's compositional diversity and talent through one of the oldest musical mediums - the string quartet - Intricate Machines pairs the acclaimed Aizuri Quartet with five rising composers: Katherine Balch, Sky Macklay, Phil Taylor, Daniel Temkin and Nina C. Young. The program combines works of diverse stylistic perspective and range, creating an engaging dialogue between pieces. Together, the works are a statement on the vitality of contemporary music and its ability to poignantly touch on many differing aspects of the human experience - particularly when performed with the commitment, passion and musical depth for which the Aizuri Quartet is known.
