Copresented with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music
Visionary maximalist composer Anna Meredith makes her Twin Cities debut with an evening of her “striking and smart” (The Guardian) electro-acoustic music performed by her band (clarinet, two cellos, electric guitar, tuba, drums, and electronics). Meredith’s compositions have been commissioned by top orchestras and chamber ensembles around the world, but her debut album, Varmints (2016), mixes and mashes classical, electronic pop, and indie rock into compositional experiments like few before her. Prepare to be delightfully overwhelmed.
“One of the most innovative minds in modern British music: She wears her obvious theoretical grounding lightly and never lets it obstruct her ecstatic quest for new ideas and deranged stimuli.” —Pitchfork
