Composers Concordance presents Bass-ics, a concert of music for three bass instruments in trio. Typically relegated to a supporting role in classical music, bass-register instruments from the string, brass, and woodwind families step into the spotlight to premiere an array of new works by renowned contemporary composers. The iconic bass trombonist - composer David Taylor, who has recorded with groups ranging from Duke Ellington to The Rolling Stones, is joined by bass flutist Kaoru Watanabe and contrabassist Troy Rinker, Jr. to perform new works composed for this unusual trio instrumentation on Saturday, February 19 at Greenwich House in New York City.
