Tuesday, December 9, 2014, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.

“One of America’s most daring and ferocious new-music ensembles” (The Chicago Reader) makes their Miller debut with imaginative works from three composers from across the globe. The evening includes New York guitarist and composer Patrick Higgins’ darkly dramatic Aletheia and twelve “microludes” from Romanian-born composer György Kurtág – passionate, serene, and haunting in turns – that demonstrate the breadth of this young quartet’s talent.

All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
