Ethel concert in Los Angeles

Title: Ethel concert in Los Angeles
Andre LaFosse and I attended the Ethel concert in Los Angeles this afternoon. It was insanely great!

Ethel is the string quartet to which list-member Todd Reynolds belongs. Most of you are probably aware of Todd's activities as a looper, and if you're lucky you may even have heard him play (he's a monster). Though it would be a stretch to call Ethel a "conventional" string quartet, they have the chops and musical sensitivity to impress classical and contemporary music audiences alike. I was certainly knocked out!

The program we heard today consisted of contemporary works (several by Todd) by a variety of living composers including John King, Evan Ziporyn, Phil Klein, et al. The tour continues tomorrow with a performance in Berkeley and others to follow, and starting April 13 the quartet hits the road with Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson:
