Encounters: David Taylor

Thursday, October 1, 2009
Harman Center for the Arts
Sidney Harman Hall
Washington, DC

PostClassical Ensemble showcases one of the world’s great instrumentalists: the bass trombonist David Taylor, whose flamboyant virtuosity and eruptive temperament astonishingly transfigure music of every stripe.

Taylor performs with PostClassical Ensemble a medley of harrowing late Schubert songs, plus a pair of jazzy and rambunctious Daniel Schnyder scores: subZERO Concerto for Bass Trombone and Orchestra (D.C. premiere) and RoTor (world premiere).

Post concert discussion with composer Daniel Schnyder.
