Network for New Music returns to The Print Center in February with a performance of important recent works from Europe. Music by Wolfgang Rihm, a towering presence in the European new music scene, anchors the program, which also includes virtuosic pieces by leading composers from Finland, Poland, Italy, and the UK. The concert features solo and ensemble performances by Network Ensemble members Edward Schultz (flute), Hirono Oka (violin) and Thomas Kraines (cello); with guest performer Christopher Schelb (flute).
