Rhythmic Connections - Classical to Popular

Outpost Performance Space, 210 Yale SE, Albuquerque, NM

A solo performance of recent works by three living composers from Argentina (Alejandro Rutty), Mexico (Arturo Márquez), and Spain (Mario Carro), all of whom use rhythm as a central component of their music. These new works will be paired with classic rags and Afro Cuban dances from the early twentieth century- pieces that lie on the border between popular and classical music, and that share an emphasis on rhythm.
