In music, the term talea (literally, “cutting” in Latin) refers to collections of repeating, cycling rhythmic patterns. This idea of a global, timeless, and cutting-edge musical practice is at the root of the Talea Ensemble, which is committed to new, groundbreaking music alongside the established literature of modern and contemporary repertoire. In this concert, the ensemble is joined by Town Music artistic director and cellist Joshua Roman in a performance with a playful theme: “Games.” The program includes the U.S. premiere of Vito Zuraj’s Deuce; Mauricio Kagel’s Match, with Roman; the world premiere of Moritz Eggert’s Pong; Milton Babbitt’s Fourplay;  and John Zorn’s Rugby. Part of the Town Music series presented by Town Hall, curated by Joshua Roman. Series supported by The Peach Foundation, The Tagney Jones Family Fund, Horizons Foundation, and Town Music Aficionados.
Advance tickets are $20/$17 seniors and Town Hall members/$10 age 25 and under at or 888/377-4510. $25/$22 /$10 at the door. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.
