An exquisite instrumentalist who has been at the vanguard of a generation of musicians invigorating the music world with bold ideas and boundless energy, Claire Chase has been called a "staggering virtuoso with the assurance of a rock star" (Los Angeles Times). For her Density 2036 project, the flutist—a MacArthur Fellow and founder of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE)—will commission a new body of work for solo flute each year for 22 years, until the 100th anniversary of Edgard Varèse's groundbreaking flute solo, Density 21.5. At BAMPFA, she performs music from Density, Parts I–IV (2013–16).
