[21ST-CENTURY CLASSICAL] When violist Kenji Bunch moved back to his hometown of Portland last year after two decades in Brooklyn, it symbolized Portland’s transformation from departure point for indie-classical creators to destination. Bunch, acclaimed as one of America’s finest emerging composers, quickly became a major figure in Portland music, including working with Portland Youth Philharmonic, and he now becomes artistic director of FearNoMusic, the veteran ensemble that’s long explored the frontiers of new music. This all-Bunch show includes his beautiful piano trio homage to American mid-century jazz and ballads, featuring an amplified sextet inspired by everything from comic book graphics to heavy metal, a string quintet that embraces Appalachian fiddling and Texas swing, and more—yet it all resounds with his distinctive, open-hearted voice.
