Harry Partch: BITTER MUSIC

Friday June 11 / 8:30

REDCAT Theater in Disney Hall 621 W. Second St. Los Angeles

John Schneider & Just Strings
Often hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, Partch‚s long-lost 1935 hobo journal will be performed for the first time as a special multi-media presentation with the composer's legendary instruments. From the transient shelters of mid-Depression California to the reading room of the British Museum, from cleaning sewers to taking tea with Irish poet W. B. Yeats, Partch's story reveals seven months in a lifetime of extraordinary struggle to forge a new musical language outside the traditions of Western Classical music.
REDCAT box office at (213)237-2800 www.redcat.org
Tickets $24/12 students & seniors
