[POSTCLASSICAL SONG CYCLE] After 20 years of bringing Portland some of the most adventurous postclassical music, FearNoMusic, the new-music ensemble comprising some of the area’s finest classical players, is forging new connections between the rapidly converging worlds of art rock and indie postclassical, as in last year’s show at the Aladdin with cellist Zoe Keating. This time, with help from other Oregon Symphony members, they’re bringing My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden to reprise her rapturously received 2010 performance (with New York’s Signal ensemble) of composer Sarah Kirkland Snider’s radiant Penelope song cycle, inspired by The Odyssey, but viewed through the eyes of the protagonist’s long-suffering wife.
