American saxophonist Colin Stetson opens this evening with a formidably post-rocking neo-classical sound. His live performances mainline a fearsome intensity with one goal: to utterly floor the audience. Armenian pianist Tigran Hamasyan follows with a solo performance of his sumptuous latest album: a contemplative, melancholic musical tale inspired by his homeland, equally erudite and immediate.
