A pair of extraordinary musicians unite in a special program of music for percussion, piano, and their combination. Known for their advocacy of new music, the duo will play classic solo works by Feldman and Stockhausen alongside a newly commissioned piece by Sir Harrison Birtwistle. Rounding out the concert is the second version of Stockhausen’s Kontakte, a treat rarely heard in Washington, D.C.
