On October 23, Interpretations presentstwo major premieres built around string quartets from two distinctive composers from New York's Downtown scene. John King presents "Free Palestine", with Neil Dufallo's A Secret Quartet, and Michael Byron presents "The Celebration", with The FLUX Quartet plus pianist Joseph Kubera and baritone Thomas Buckner.
In anticipation of this great concert, we are offering two interesting works from these two composers: Michael Byron's "A Bird Revealing the Unknown to the Sky" (performed by Joseph Kubera), and a selection from John King's "Free Palestine".
