Returning to REDCAT with its array of custom-built microtonal instruments, the rollicking Grammy Award winning ensemble named after music maverick Harry Partch teams up with another original American voice, composer Anne LeBaron. The John Schneider-led group is presenting five scenes from LeBaron’s latest opus, LSD: The Opera. The program also includes Partch’sUlysses Departs from the Edge of the World (1955), originally written for trumpeter Chet Baker and saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and performed here by Daniel Rosenboom and Ulrich Krieger; Two Settings from Lewis Carroll (1954); the insanely funny Yankee Doodle Fantasy (1944); and Sonata Dementia(1949), the composer’s first large ensemble work.
