He will be joined by Andy Akiho, the composer of Lost on Chiaroscuro Street, which features on the program, who will discuss the ideas, inspiration and composition process behind this eclectic groundbreaking piece. The concert's other works, Ravel's String Quartet in a minor, and Messiaen's complex masterwork Quartet for the End of Time will also be explored.
