Description: On Tuesday, November 20 at 8pm, the Guggenheim Museum presents the U.S. premiere of avant-garde composer Salvatore Sciarrino?s soundscape for 104 flutes Il cerchio tagliato dei suoni (Cutting the Circle of Sounds), in a site-specific performance in the museum's rotunda featuring several of the city's most acclaimed flutists. Sciarrino's plan for the performance draws its inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright?s spiraling architecture and features four flute soloists forming a circle around the seated audience and creating an accelerating swirl of sound, only to be interrupted by one hundred migrating flutists, who walk in procession through the space, introducing a flow of sound and movement while ?cutting the circle of sounds".
