For our 9th program, A Place to Listen will be hosting Victoria’s Vis á Vis Saxophone Quartet.

This beautiful program will feature: Margaret Ashburner’s 2009 work Ink Blot, a stunningly gentle exploration of elusive multi-phonics and luminous resonance. Daniel Brandes’ 2012 open-instrumentation piece as if from a distance; intimations of melody, a deeply immersive piece in which each musician of the ensemble independently explores the same melody, allowing it to organically resonate off of itself in an distant and tenuous counterpoint. The quartet will also perform Antoine Beuger’s beautiful 2003 Saxophone Quartet—consisting primarily of soft, distant single tones and diads, Beuger’s Quartet is a piece of deep calm.
