BIG EARS

Artist Addition: Ned Rothenberg

Composer and performer Ned Rothenberg has presented his solo and ensemble music to much acclaim for the past 33 years, performing primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi — an endblown Japanese bamboo flute. Possessing an expanded palette of sonic language, Rothenberg can move from the contemporary classical setting of his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings to “jazz-funk in cubist perspective, dizzying, yet visceral” to “intense, slightly melancholic, rhapsodic without being sentimental” (New York Times).
