Missy Mazzoli, Still Life With Avalanche *

Philippe Leroux, Ailes

György Ligeti, Chamber Concerto

Alongside the iconic Chamber Concerto and a shimmering masterwork from French composer Philippe Leroux, Aventa presents music from the astonishing American composer Missy Mazzoli. Described by Time Out as a “post-millennial Mozart,” Mazzoli is one of the more consistently inventive and surprising composers creating today. In Still Life With Avalanche, she changes direction yet again. A strange and evocative sonic landscape emerges as piles of melodies collapse in a chaotic free fall, with bursts of sounds layering over the static drones of harmonicas. “At its core, this is a piece about finding beauty in chaos, and vice versa.” – Missy Mazzoli

* Canadian premiere

“Mazzoli’s … is music for a long night that never ends.” – Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
