  • Toru Takemitsu, Rain Tree for percussion trio
  • Steve Reich, Drumming Part I for percussion quartet
  • Dmitri Shostakovich, String Quartet No. 5 in B-Flat Major, Op. 92

Patterns, phases, motifs, and monograms come together in Chameleon’s audacious season finale. Reich transforms the function of rhythm, Nørgård channels the king of counterpoint, and Shostakovich brings power, intensity, and dazzling technique to a landmark of the string quartet repertoire.
