Miller Theatre celebrates the groundbreaking avant-garde of Eastern Europe with a series of two Pop-Up Concerts in conjunction with a Composer Portrait featuring Iancu Dumitrescu.
This Pop-Up celebrates a number of groundbreaking composers whose work weaves together the musical traditions of Romania with international influences—especially the use of mathematics in acoustic exploration. It traces the development of spectral music from George Enescu to Stefan Niculescu to his student Horatiu Radulescu, as well as the parallel explorations of Giacinto Scelsi and Iannis Xenakis. Their groundbreaking compositions exemplify the driving power of this under-explored compositional style.
Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
