Post-Gazette Previews Beyond: Microtonal Music Festival

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has published an extensive feature on this weekend's Beyond: Microtonal Music Festival in their Weeknd Magazine. According to the P-G's Liz Bloom,

"Together, the performances and symposium demonstrate the breadth and depth of microtonal music, which, in Mr. Rosenblum’s view, should no longer be considered “the other” or “a fringe sub-field.” These days, more classically trained musicians are versed in the skills needed to play microtones, and some of the most significant composers of the late 20th and 21st centuries have used microtonal tuning systems, from Terry Riley to Lou Harrison to Harry Partch."

Be sure to read the entire article and don't miss out on what promises to be a watershed musical experience. Find out more about tickets and the full schedule for the Beyond: Microtonal Music Festival.
