Javier Moreno and Icarus quartet
Icarus Quartet performs Javier Moreno’s new piece called “Queen of the Limbo,” and “Textures” by Paul Lansky.
The ensemble Icarus Quartet formed by Larry Weng Piano, Yevgeny Yontov (Piano), Matt Keown (Percussion) and Jeff Stern (Percussion) premiere a brand new piece by Javier Moreno (Double Bass and Composition) called Queen of the Limbo. The piece a live musical photograph for double bass, two pianos, marimba, and vibraphone that seeks to reflect the current way of living, where we are constantly overwhelmed by external impulses that force us to live in an intermittent placebo effect. The overdose of information to which we are subjected is self-alienating; we are also in a state of permanent disconnection from humanity and the planet. In addition to the release, the group will also perform a piece by the composer Paul Lansky called Textures.
