Six Impossible Things - Thursday, January 27, 2011

The duo Six Impossible Things was formed in 2010 and features Jeremy Koch, saxophone, and Molly Orlando, piano. Performing together since 2004, Six Impossible Things specializes in new music for saxophone and piano and, in particular, champions the works of emerging young composers.

The duo's program is a musical rabbit-hole, with a cast of characters including hairless cats, 'the lady in the red dress' and musical inspirations ranging from Renaissance chansons to the tuning of a pit orchestra to Italian slasher films. The program includes three pieces commissioned by the duo; two are by Washington, D.C.-area composers Nathan Lincoln-DeCusatis and Tim Dusenbury and the other by Chicago-based John Elmquist. Joined for part of the program by clarinetist John Romano, the concert features the following works:
Pit Band, William Albright
Flea Circus, Andrew Bishop
Giallo, Nathan Lincoln-DeCusatis (world premiere)
Three Quiet Dances, Tim Dusenbury
Hairless Cat Sonata, John Elmquist

8 pm, Fine Arts Recital Hall. Admission is free. For more information call 410-455-2942.
