The Getty Center present’s “Carl Stone’s Sonic Excursions from Al-Noor to Zang”, a concert that revives some of Stone’s early works and updates them in keeping with the evolution of both musical technology and his own personal style and aesthetic. Stone’s Sukothai, part of the first half of the program, was first heard in Los Angeles at the Pacific Design Center in 1980, as part of the Chamber Music in Historic Sites series curated by Maryann Bonino. Sonic Excursions from Al-Noor to Zang also includes the world premieres of several new works, such as Stone’s Hoang Yen, a duo for computer and keyboard, which features internationally acclaimed pianist Gloria Cheng in her worldwide debut as a harpsichordist, and A Ta Geuele, featuring Min Xiao-Fen performing on pipa, the traditional Chinese lute.
Parking is free after 5:00 p.m.
