Matthias Ziegler

Matthias Ziegler is one of the world's most versatile and innovative flutists. He is committed both to the traditional literature for flute as well as to contemporary music and concepts that cross the boundaries between classical music and jazz. Accordingly, his performances take place in a vast range of contexts: he is principal flutist with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, has toured with Andreas Vollenweider and performs with the percussionist Pierre Favre as well as with the American contrabass player Mark Dresser. He is also a member of the "Collegium Novum Zurich", where he has worked with Mauricio Kagel, Heinz Holliger and George Crumb. Concert tours have brought him to the US, Japan, Australia, South America and Israel. Many recordings on CD document his inclusive musical interests.

Hailed by The Chicago Tribune for "powerful virtuosity and striking razor-sharp ensemble playing," ANTARES was named First Prize Winner of the 2002 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, where the ensemble was also awarded the Victor and Sono Elmaleh Award, the WQXR Prize, and numerous performance prize engagements. Comprised of four virtuoso instrumentalists, Antares draws from a vast and colorful repertoire for the piano-clarinet quartet formation, as well as its various trio and duo permutations. This versatility allows Antares to create programs which span the traditional eras of classical music from the 18th century through the music of today, and the group has quickly gained a stellar reputation for its dedication to the commissioning and promotion of music by living composers.

A Happening by CCRMA and Friends

Developed at Black Mountain College by Cunningham and lifelong creative partner John Cage, the "happening" was an experimental coming-together of music and dance in unlikely settings. Come to a present-day happening, as presented by Stanford students and faculty from the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) who have been researching and creating music using methods developed by Cage. The musicians will be joined by dancers from Cunningham's company to carry the tradition of the happening late into the night!
