It’s not a misprint – tonight, percussionist Luke Rinderknecht will play the flower pots alongside cellist Jeffrey Zeigler in Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw’s work, Boris Kerner, named for a transportation engineer who developed an influential theoretical model for vehicular traffic. Shaw’s composition is aptly juxtaposed with Andrew Norman’s Gran Turismo, inspired in part by traffic flows of another sort: high-speed race cars in video games. On the second half, faculty artist Mikhail Kopelman leads a performance of Brahms’s rich second String Sextet.
