Celebrating Composer Wolfgang Rihm
The new music ensemble Sound Icon performs chamber music and large ensemble works of preeminent German composer Wolfgang Rihm. Remarkably prolific and famously brilliant, Rihm paints his music in broad, Wagnerian strokes, eliciting comparisons to the raw, emotive manner of action painters such as Jackson Pollock.
