World premieres by Christopher Trapani, Ingrid Laubrock, Eric Nathan, and Baldwin Giang
Percussionist, conductor, and electro-acoustic composer James Baker is ubiquitous in New York’s contemporary music scene, conducting the Talea Ensemble and writing for many of the world’s leading new music ensembles. Baker returns to the Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition to lead the Grossman Ensemble in world premieres of music that brings together diverse influences, from American folk and blues to jazz, baroque, and Turkish makam.
Presented in partnership with the Chicago Center for Contemporary Composition
