The Grammy-nominated ALIAS Chamber Ensemble, fresh off of recording its third CD, opens its 2014-15 season with yet another offering of eclectic repertoire, including three works by relatively unknown writers: mid-20th-century composer Toru Takemitsu; post-minimalist Kevin Volans; and 21st-century composer Steven Snowden. ALIAS also turns back the clock a century to present Ernest Bloch’s Nocturnes, and then two more centuries to perform a work on period instruments by early Baroque composer Johann Schmeltzer. A concert with something for everyone — this is ALIAS’ hallmark!
