Works by Scelsi, Jolivet, Kerekes, Kirsten and Johnson.



Anne Dearth (making her Boston debut!) and Chuck Furlong are presenting an evening of modern works for flute and clarinet, interspersed with the Counting Duets by Tom Johnson. A very diverse program, performance art works such as Pirouette on a Moon Sliver by Amy Beth Kirsten are contrasted with European avant-garde works Sonatine by Andre Jolivet and Ko-Lho by Giacinto Scelsi.

Chuck Furlong is an active performer in the Boston and New York areas. He has performed with Boston Modern Orchestra Project, North End Music and Performing Arts Commission (NEMPAC) Opera Project, and Boston Opera Collaborative. In the fall of 2014, he co-founded Soundry, an ensemble dedicated to performing contemporary music rarely heard in Boston. His most recent project, Rested Field, is a free improv trio exploring acoustic and electroacoustic soundscapes.

In New York, Chuck has performed with Contemporaneous, played Pierrot Lunaire as part of the Austrian Cultural Forum’s Arnold Schoenberg series and performed in the Nouveau Classical Project’s In & Around C at Gallery 128. Chuck has also been involved with Bang On A Can, performing as a fellow at the 2013 and 2014 Summer Festivals and playing at the 2012 marathon. With two other 2014 Summer Festival alumni, he helped to create Exceptet, an ensemble using the instrumentation of Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du soldat. Most recently, Exceptet performed at Merkin Concert Hall as part of the co-presented Ecstatic Music/MATA Interval Festival.
