Percussionist Allen Otte: 50 years of Brün & Rzewski
March 22 @ 7:30 pm$15
Percussionist Allen Otte presents TIME AND TRUTH – 50 years of the music and art of Herbert Brün and Frederic Rzewski, featuring works for mixed percussion, marimba, and electronics. This is a rare opportunity to hear one of the master percussionists of our time interpret two of the most important composers you may never have heard of:
Composer Herbert Brün (1918-2000) was a pioneer in the application of computer technology to the generation of both music and images.
Virtuoso pianist and composer Frederic Rzewski (b. 1938) ranks with the legendary David Tudor as one of the most creative voices for his instrument in the last three generations.
Percussionist and composer Allen Otte (b. 1950) was a co-founder of the Blackearth Percussion Group and Percussion Group/Cincinnati and currently tours as a soloist. He worked closely with both Brün and Rzewski for decades as one of the most sensitive interpreters of their work. In 2017 he was inducted into The International Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame.
