Please join us at Pasadena’s Arlington Garden for the next installment of how we are in time and space: Annotations with an outdoor performance by Los Angeles–based composer and performer Tashi Wada.
For his contribution to how we are in time and space, Wada will present Duets, a series of compositions for two string instruments, performed here on cello by Charles Curtis and Peter Ko. The Duets were composed between 2006 and 2008, and recorded by Curtis and Judith Hamann for the 2014 album Duets, released on Wada’s Saltern label.
Duets will be performed in the Olive Allee at Arlington Garden, and the performance will be followed by a conversation about the composition and Marcia Hafif with Tashi Wada, Charles Curtis, and Michael Ned Holte, curator of how we are in time and space: Nancy Buchanan, Marcia Hafif, Barbara T. Smith. Marcia Hafif. Marcia Hafif was close to both Wada and Curtis, and her painting 85. June 1965 was selected as the cover artwork for Duets.
