Two world premieres by Bay Area residents round out the American Mavericks concerts. Mason Bates, who is also the Project San Francisco composer, brings his individual style of electronica and choral writing to Mass Transmission. And John Adams introduces Absolute Jest, featuring the St. Lawrence String Quartet and based on fragments of Beethoven scherzos. Rounding out the evening is pianist Emanuel Ax with the SFS in Feldman’s work of free-floating rhythms and slowly evolving sounds, Piano and Orchestra. The Orchestra reprises its highly praised performance of Varèse’s Amériques.
