Exploring the Avant-Garde

On March 25 at 4 p.m., the Polish Music Center presents the gnarwhallaby ensemble in the 2017 Polish Music Spring concert: “Exploring the Avant-Garde.” This concert will uncover various facets of avant-garde expression that have existed throughout contemporary music history in Poland, from the 1950s until today, with a program of such visionary composers as Tadeusz Baird, Henryk Mikolaj Górecki, Hanna Kulenty, Krzysztof Meyer, Bogusław Schaeffer and Witold Szalonek.

An adventurous and unique L.A.-based ensemble, gnarwhallaby is built around the instrument combination of the 1960s ‘Warsztat Muzyczny’: clarinet (Brian Walsh), trombone (Matt Barbier), cello (Derek Stein), and piano (Richard Valitutto).
