The Prism Quartet

 

continued

The big piece on the program is Andrew Mead's Saxophone Quartet no. 1 from 2003. This performance will be its Michigan premiere; Mead wrote it at the Prism Quartet's request and dedicated it to the group. As he describes the work, "The four movements each treat the ensemble in a different way, with the first movement combining four miniature concertos for each of the instruments, the second splitting the ensemble into three different pairs of duos, the third dealing with trios in various ways, and the fourth treating the quartet as a single big raucous instrument."

The big treat on the program is a transcription of William Bolcom's greatest hit, the Graceful Ghost Rag, a work with more than twenty recordings that has been a big favorite of local audiences for over thirty years.    (end of article)
