Expanding horizons is the focus this week, as we look at our collection of
musical iconoclasts we call the Leading Edge. In March, clarinet
master Ben Goldberg brings his all-star quartet Go
Home, featuring homegrown guitar star Charlie Hunter.
Local hero Adam Theis follows with the world premiere of his
Suite for Trombone and Strings. Drumming dynamo Dafnis Prieto
and his firebrand Proverb Trio will blow minds in April, and the
series concludes in June as the widely acclaimed ROVA Saxophone
Quartet celebrates 33 1/3 years of innovation together. With a strong
sense of heritage, these sonic explorers chart new directions in music.
