Michael Snow + Casey Sokol - [excerpt]

This year's X Avant not only celebrated the festival's tenth anniversary, but also the Music Gallery's 40th season. No surprise, then, that the festival incorporated various methods to look back at the MG's legacy. After a panel bringing together all of the Gallery's Artistic Directors, the festival kicked off with this pairing of MG founders who could often be found improvising together at the original St. Patrick Street location. Playing side-by-side on grand pianos, Snow and Sokol produced rolling swells of notes, the density thickening and then dissipating.
