Brooklyn’s own TILT Brass presents a program of works by legendary New York composers including the premiere of a new transcription of Julius Eastman’s brutalist If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich? (1977) for a 13 piece orchestra of brass, strings, and chimes (featuring violinist Josh Henderson), the premiere of TILT’s massed brass version of Phill Niblock’s Exploratory (2019), and Zeena Parkins’ Whistling in the Dark Wind (2019) for TILT Brass sextet and two improvisers (Parkins on harp & polymath musician James Fei on analog electronics.) Ms. Parkins will also present a solo harp set of two new works, one of her own creation, the other by her Mills College composer colleague John Bischoff.
