Ensemble Dal Niente

As public schools decide whether or not to do away with the diabetes delivery systems known as vending machines, we are no doubt coming face-to-face with the reality of our excess, gastronomical or otherwise. One composer who is addressing issues of saturation head-on is France’s Raphaël Cendo, and local avant-gardists ensemble dal niente are his mouthpiece this month. The outer borders of virtuosity will be excavated in this portrait concert, and I am particularly impatient to hear the world premiere of Cendo’s “Graphein” for flute, clarinet, saxophone, horn, harp, piano, percussion, violin, cello and bass. We can only hope Constellation’s bar is brewing up some ungodly saturation cocktail for the occasion.
