Rhythmic Kaleidoscopes at Monash University, Melbourne

Comprised of six works by a selection of classic and contemporary minimalist and post-minimalist composers, including Julia Wolfe, Terry Riley, John Cage, David Lang, John Luther Adams and John Adams, Zubin Kanga’s ‘Rhythmic Kaleidoscopes’ offers a diverse and nuanced intersection of genre-defining works spanning the genres’ beginnings in the downtown art scene of New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco during the 1950s—to now.

Known for his masterful execution of contemporary repertoire and his multimedia-focused approach, Kanga has performed at international festivals, including the BBC Proms (UK), London Contemporary Music Festival (UK) and Borealis Festival (Norway), and has appeared as a soloist with the London Sinfonietta and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. He has worked with many of the world’s leading composers, including Thomas Adès, Michael Finnissy and Steve Reich, and his recent recording ‘Piano Inside Out’ was nominated for Best Classical Album at the Australian Independent Music Awards.

Limited to an audience of 150, audience and artist are seated on the stage together for an intimate performance that is not to be missed.
