FLUX Quartet with Evan Ziporyn, saxophone and composer,
Tom Chiu, violin,
Conrad Harris, violin,
Max Mandel, viola,
Felix Fan, cello
Seminal works by the 3 great masters of American minimalism. The spirit to explore and expand stylistic boundaries is a trademark of the FLUX Quartet. Inspired by the allembracing philosophy of the Fluxus movement, violinist Tom Chiu founded the FLUX Quartet in a search for a living art for all people with an “anything-goes, do-it-yourself” spirit. To that end, FLUX has always been committed to projects of unique vision that defy aesthetic categorization. FLUX is joined by Evan Ziporyn (formerly of Bang on a Can) for a program of intrepid works by America’s great minimalists.
