A Lou Harrison Centenary Celebration

Mon, April 24, 2017 – 8:00 pm

A Lou Harrison Centenary Celebration

Join PostClassical Ensemble at the Indonesian Embassy to listen to Lou Harrison’s work in his centenary celebration, with commentaries by Gamelan Scholar and Professor Sumarsam.

Post-Classical Ensemble (PCE) has long promoted Lou Harrison (1917-2003) as an overlooked American master. Harrison practiced world music before there was a name for it. With John Cage and Henry Cowell, he invented the percussion ensemble. Drawing on the fragrance and intricacy of Javanese gamelan, he created a profound East/West musical synthesis. This Harrison Centenary celebration coincides with the release of PCE’s new Lou Harrison CD on Naxos.
