The 1960s were a time of social, political, and cultural unrest and this manifested itself in the art and music of the period. Complementing the Albright-Knox’s exhibition Giant Steps: Artists and the 1960s, the concert program explores the various musical trends of the 1960s, including Minimalism, phase music, recorded sounds, dance, mechanical works, and performance art. The Buffalo Chamber Players welcomes Anne Burnidge Dance for this performance.

Luciano Berio O King
John Cage Music for Amplified Toy Pianos
Morton Feldman De Kooning
György Ligeti Poème symphonique for 100 metronomes
