The keyboard and Meredith Monk
Two new-music experts present her piano work
Meredith Monk, named the 2012 composer of the year by Musical America, has in recent years broadened her musical horizon outward from her fascination with the human voice and composed a series of works that unite vocals and instruments in novel ways. On Thursday, New England Conservatory presents a complete performance of Monk’s music for one and two pianos. The performers, Bruce Brubaker and Ursula Oppens, are new-music authorities who have worked with the composer in the past.
