In celebration of the exhibition of Noguchi’s two sculptures Birth (1934) and Death (1934) together in the same gallery for the first time, The Noguchi Museum presents The Rhythm Method String Quartet featuring Alice Teyssier in a program entitled The Once and Future Maiden. In the same way that Noguchi sought a lifelong balance between figuration and abstraction, the various compositional voices on this program deal with fragmented portraits of women in life and death.

On September 11, the Argus String Quartet & Friends will play a concert featuring the music of Martin Bresnick, in honor of the composer’s 70th birthday. Bresnick’s expressive and direct music has influenced a generation of composers, including many Bang on a Can regulars. The program is fancifully titled "Homeward bound with a lawyer-horse, mice, and a worker who reads," and will include his Going Home, String Quartet #2 (Bucephalus), Josephine the Singer, and Songs of the Mouse People.
