    Ludovico Einaudi: Essential Einaudi
    Royce Hall, 10745 Dickson Ct, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA

    Back by popular demand, UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance again welcomes the incomparable Ludovico Einaudi to Royce Hall for two unforgettable evenings, Oct. 19 & 20.

    A classically trained pianist and composer, Einaudi is best known for his unique, genre-defying musical style that blends elements of classical, avant-garde, rock, jazz, electronica and world music in an effortlessly lyrical and unexpected way.

    The Adelaide Review described his compositions as “rolling waves” and said that while “some describe it as nostalgic and liken its patterned harmonies to pop music…in truth, this Milanese musician has invented a solitary musical path of his own, one where genre distinctions cease to matter and establishment practices are left far behind.”

    The Truth in Simple Things
    A new music recital featuring new music by George N. Gianopoulos and a world premiere by Ryan Keebaugh performed by mezzo-soprano Megan Ihnen and Grammy-nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko.

    The theme of "Truth in Simple Things" takes its concept from the Dorothy Parker quote, "Wit has truth in it." Each of the three Gianopoulos cycles share themes such as expressions of contained grief and rich internal worlds juxtaposed with the bustle of life around the individual. Each piece on the program could be seen through different lenses all focused on "creating sanctuary" within oneself.

    Admission is FREE. All are welcome!

    Sounding Limits: The Music of Pascale Criton
    REDCAT ROY AND EDNA DISNEY/CALARTS THEATER, 631 W 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA

    The expressive duo of Silvia Tarozzi (violin) and Deborah Walker (cello) join CalArts composer and violist Eyvind Kang to present the U.S. premiere of recent works by the innovative French composer Pascale Criton. A former student of microtonal pioneer Ivan Wyschnegradsky and spectralist Gérard Grisey, Criton is internationally known for her use of specific tunings with minute intervals. In this program, the instruments are tuned to 1/16th of a tone, an interval barely perceptible to the ear, generating effects that alter our perception of timbre, rhythm and time. The Tarozzi-Walker Duo has been collaborating with Criton since 2008, reaching a unique sound in microtonal extended techniques for strings, breaking down the barriers of what is usually playable and audible.

    Drinkward Recital Hall, 320 East Foothill Boulevard, Claremont, CA 91711
    Free and open to public

    The unique duo of Paul Livingstone and Peter Jacobson straddles Indian raga and European classical music.

    Sangam is the chamber music duo of sitarist Paul Livingstone and cellist Peter Jacobson. Sangam performs innovative compositions and improvisations straddling the worlds of Indian classical music and European polyphony which arc between deep musical meditations to dynamic poly-rhythmic counterpoint. Their unique sound is imbibed with the free spirit of a jazz improvisation and incorporates touches of Latin and popular music styles. Livingstone and Jacobson have been recording and touring together for over 12 years performing with Arohi Ensemble, Build an Ark, and Quartetto Fantastico among many other projects born of the globalized Los Angeles creative music community. They have been featured on three Grammy Award winning records, with Ozomatli, Quetzal & Rickey Kej. Sangam means 'a confluence of rivers;' it is a meeting place of disparate streams flowing into one.

    Petits Artéfacts is the debut solo recording from Eighth Blackbird founding cellist and co-artistic director Nick Photinos.

    The album brings together never-before-recorded works from some of the most acclaimed names in new music — David Lang, Andrew Norman, Bryce Dessner, David T. Little — but also a newer generation of groundbreaking composers like Angélica Negrón, Florent Ghys, Molly Joyce, and Pascal Le Boeuf, who are quickly gaining notoriety as well. The music ranges from quirky and hilarious to profound and ethereal, and the pieces create worlds and context far outweighing their length. The music is enlightened with the help of Photinos’s favorite collaborators, pianist Vicki Ray and percussionist Doug Perkins.

    Jazz legend Bennie Maupin appears at REDCAT for the first live performance of The Jewel in the Lotus, an iconic ECM release from 1974.

The Bennie Maupin Ensemble fuses memories of Maupin’s early mentors with seminal saxophone-bass-drum trios led by Sonny Rollins with Wilbur Ware and Elvin Jones. The eight-piece ensemble features Munyungo Jackson, percussion; David Johnson, vibraphone/marimba; Jeff Parker, guitar; Darek Oles, bass; Gene Coye on drums; Steve Lehman, saxophone; and Eyvind Kang, viola.

    Outpost Concert Series: Transient Canvas
    UCR Barbara and Art Culver Center of the Arts, 3834 Main St, Riverside, CA 92501, USA

    Praised by the Boston Globe as “superb”, the dynamic bass clarinet/marimba duo Transient Canvas (Amy Advocat, bass clarinet & Matt Sharrock, marimba) has been blazing its own trail in the world of contemporary music since 2011. In under five years, they have premiered over 60 new works, essentially creating an entirely new repertoire for their unique instrumentation. Fearless in their programming and hungry for new collaborations, TC has performed anywhere from microbreweries to Jordan Hall and actively seeks out new composers who will stretch their instrumentation to its limits.

    Transient Canvas performs almost exclusively works written for them. Their mission is to provide a blank slate or canvas for composers to explore while simultaneously making bass clarinet and marimba a new standard ensemble. They have worked with a wide variety of composers, including well established artists such as Marti Epstein, Curtis Hughes, John McDonald and Andy Vores and emerging voices such as Victoria Cheah, Peter Van Zandt Lane, Adam Roberts, and Tina Tallon.
