The acclaimed experimental music ensemble Either/Or presents its 6th annual Spring Festival of contemporary chamber music as part of The Kitchen’s 40th anniversary season. Thursday's concert pairs classics from the genesis of New York's experimental music scene of the 1970s with emerging composers in a program including Robert Ashley, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and a new work for string quartet from Australian composer Andrew Byrne. Friday evening's program focuses on the European margins with rarities from Luigi Nono, Horatiu Radulescu, Giacinto Scelsi, alongside recent works of Raphaël Cendo and other younger artists.
