Perhaps the highlight of the spring schedule is the Contemporary Music Marathon. Its three acts—Nightfall, Dreams, and Daybreak—will feature works by more than 50 living composers and will be performed nonstop for 24 hours, starting at 5 p.m. on March 23.
Given the sheer scale, it's impossible to describe every promising performance, obviously, but some highlights might include avant-jazz drummer Tyshawn Sorey's Trio (for Harold Budd), electronic/found-sound composer Annea Lockwood's In Our Name, John Luther Adams's songbirdsongs, Piano Piece No. 3 from Frederic Rzewski (of improv giants Musica Elettronica Viva), versatile jazz-funk keyboardist Wayne Horvitz's Music for Mixed Quintet, master violinist Annie Gosfield's Long Waves and Random Pulses, and pieces by minimalist legends Terry Riley (G-Song) and Philip Glass (String Quartet No. 6). by Dave Segal
