It looks like cellist/curator Joshua Roman will be delivering some tasty new-music goods for the 2014-15 Town Music season. Roman himself performs Sept. 23 with two fellow string players and a pianist in an evening of piano quartets by Brahms, Sharlat and Andres.
NOW Ensemble, with its mix of electronica and classical influences and unusual instrumental line-up (flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass, piano), follows on Nov. 5.
Third Coast Percussion, based in Chicago, gets the New Year off with a bang on Jan. 12 with works by Cage and others.
On March 25, Deviant Septet will match Stravinsky’s “L’Histoire du Soldat” with conductor-composer Esa-Pekka Salonen’s response to it, “Catch and Release.” The season closes June 27 with John Adams’ magnificent “Shaker Loops” in its string-orchestra version.
Series tickets are $85 general audiences, $80 for Town Hall members. Single tickets run $10-$25, with some day-of-show $5 Teen Tix available. Go to www.townhallseattle.org for more information.
