Victoria's newest experimental music series, A Place to Listen, presents unwritten page: piano music by Taylan Susam, Jürg Frey, and Christopher Reiche. Featuring performances by local composer/pianists Daniel Brandes and Christopher Reiche.

Brandes will perform Nocturnes (2009) by Dutch composer Taylan Susam and the quietly enigmatic sam lazaro bros (1984) by Swiss composer and clarinetist Jürg Frey. Reiche will present the world premiere of his newest work A song in several layers (2012).

More than a concert series, A Place to Listen is about creating a space. A quiet place where, for an hour or two, one can be deeply attuned to something. Nothing spectacular or sensational. Just some tones and some silence. In our current culture of hyper-stimulation and saturation—which attempts to colonize our imaginations and demands that we not look too closely, or feel too deeply—this kind of musical practice is, for me, essential. It feeds a part of us that, more and more, we are learning to neglect. The part that needs quiet.

Rather than a concert series, this is a listening series.
