Angel Otero: Everything and Nothing

February 9 | 6:30 pm

Free

Join us for a free and informal performance of modern classical music presented in connection with the exhibition Angel Otero: Everything and Nothing. The evening features works by (mostly) Puerto Rico-born composers. They include: the infectious rhythms of Bong-O and Tres Pensamientos by Roberto Sierra, a former student of György Ligeti; the dynamic and ritualistic Como si fuera la primavera by Carlos Carrillo-Cotto; William Ortiz Alvarado’s Soneo de la 22, a virtuosic tour-de-force for solo cello; Javier Álvarez’s solo percussion work, Temazcal; and Four Preludes for Two Clarinets by Musiqa composer Marcus Karl Maroney. Angel Otero: Everything and Nothing is presented in collaboration with the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
