Take note, aspiring new-music soloists: Chicago is doubling down on Nadia Sirota this month. The New-York based violist is responsible for two top-shelf solo records, First Things First and Baroque, not to mention guest appearances on albums by Son Lux, Grizzly Bear, Ratatat and the National. For her Constellation date, Sirota leans heavy on the oeuvre and collaborative piano-work of Missy Mazzoli, who will be on hand, and I’m especially amped to hear a live performance of Shara Worden's (a.k.a. My Brightest Diamond) “From the Invisible to the Visible.”
