National Sawdust I: Andy Akiho
Brooklyn, NY

  • National Sawdust 80 North 6th Street Brookyln, NY 11249 (map)

As one of National Sawdust’s 2018-2019 Artists-in-Residence, PUBLIQuartet are advancing their work to commission and present composers outside of the standard classical canon. For their first show this season, the dynamic, groundbreaking PUBLIQuartet teams up with percussion stars Andy Akiho and Ian Rosenbaum for a concert of Akiho’s vibrant, viscerally driving music.

Their first show presents Andy Akiho, one of the most “vital” composers (New York Times) composing today. His virtuosic use of elaborate rhythms and unexpected timbres mesmerizes and moves in equal measure.

With Akiho’s frequent collaborator Ian Rosenbaum — a “meteoric young talent” in the percussion world (Washington Post) — on marimba, this concert promises to be a rollicking tour–de–force performance of Akiho’s String QuartetLIgNEouS, and Karakurenai.
