Mauricio Kagel, one of modern musicís most significant, prolific and unclassifiable composers, passed away in 2008. This concert highlights two sides of his humorous and dramatic work, which often shines a skeptical light on musical conventions. The hilarious Dressur for percussion trio transforms the concert stage into a circus ring, a metaphor for the bondage of a musicianís life. Kagelís Trio in three movements is a masterpiece of pure chamber music, a glance back at the 19th century German Romantic tradition, yet never far away from the composerís native Argentina. Not to be missed, 111 bicycles—with bells and whistles—will whoosh down Grand Avenue in the L.A. premiere of Eine Brise.
