Gnarwhallaby and Polish Avant-Garde

On March 25 at 4:00 p.m., the adventurous gnarwhallaby ensemble will reveal rare facets of avant-garde expression in contemporary Polish music through the works of such visionary composers as Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, Zygmunt Krauze, Hanna Kulenty, Krzysztof Meyer, Bogusław Schaeffer, Witold Szalonek, and Tadeusz Wielecki. Entitled “Exploring the Avant-Garde,” the 2017 PMC Spring concert presents a survey of avant-garde expression as it has existed throughout contemporary music history in Poland, with a program ranging from the 1950s until today.

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