A heads up on this fest, which will take place at NY’s Roulette:
Anthony Braxton‘s Tri-Centric Festival, a 4-day event which will take place Oct.5-8 at Roulette’s brand new space in Brooklyn, NY. The most comprehensive overview of Anthony’s music yet presented in the United States, this festival will include Pine Top Arial Music (world premiere), Diamond Curtain Wall Trio (U.S. debut), 12+3tet performing Echo Echo Mirror House Music, and more. The Tri-Centric Orchestra will perform in public for the first time ever, and the final evening will see a concert reading of two acts of Anthony’s newest opera, Trillium J, with a cast of twelve singers and 35-piece orchestra. Anthony will be performing or conducting every night, accompanied by over 60 of NYC’s leading creative musicians.
This event coincides with the release of Trillium E, a four-act work and the first studio recording of a Braxton opera, which will also be the first physical release from New Braxton House label.
