The new music series, MIT Sounding, has announced its 2015 and 2016 schedule of innovative performances by some of the world’s leading artists. This year’s diverse offerings run the gamut, from Bach to Led Zeppelin and Morton Feldman, and from acoustic recitals to electronic manipulations of the human voice.
The fall season begins on Sept. 25, when classical cellist Maya Beiser reinterprets the rock canon in “Uncovered,” a treatment of music from Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Nirvana, and others. October brings the first performance of a new opera, Keeril Makan and Jay Scheib’s reinvention of Ingmar Bergman’s classic 1966 film “Persona,” as well as a large-scale reprise of violinist Johnny Gandelsman’s single-evening performance of Bach’s complete Sonatas and Partitas. Next winter and spring, FLUX Quartet will present the long-awaited Boston premiere of Morton Feldman’s uninterrupted, six-hour String Quartet No. 2; and electroacoustic songstress Pamela Z will combine vocal virtuosity and technology in a solo performance of her own works.
