All eight members of the ACME Group.

In this concert from March 14, The American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) presents a dual composer portrait of two giants of post-minimalist contemporary music: Kevin Volans and John Luther Adams. Though each composer has a sound distinct from his contemporaries, both have found significant inspiration in the natural world and their environments. South African rhythms and timbres run rampant in Volans' two string quartets, and the vastness of the Alaskan landscape is clearly at play in Adams' music.

Set List

  • Adams: The Farthest Place
  • Volans: White Man Sleeps
  • Volans: Shiva dances
