MicroFest 2018

Welcome to the 21st MicroFest, the annual celebration of the “notes-between-the-notes.” We are proud to present 15 premieres this season, ranging from Baroque masterworks [Marc Sabat’s justly tuned duet versions of two Bach solo violin sonatas], Ben Johnston’s Octet, & the thrilling choreography of Partch’s classic Daphne of the Dunes by Casebolt & Smith, to major new works by local hero Wolfgang von Schweinitz & the high tech electronic wizardry of Daniel Corral’s POLYTOPE. There will be modern classics by Bartok, Lachenmann, Harry Partch & his close friend Ben Johnston, too.

Feast your ears on the solo refretted guitars of Mak Grgic, re-imagined keyboarding of Aron Kallay, the Falcone|Cubarsi violin duo, the Kobayashi Trio, the Lyris Quartet, as well as LA new music stalwarts wasteLAnd, PARTCH, and others.

Come explore these new microtonal soundscapes and hear sounds you’ve never heard before… and can’t wait to hear again.
