No reservations required.  In conjunction with the installation of Hanne Darboven’s Kulturgeschichte 1880–1983 (Cultural History 1880–1983, 1980–83), Dia Art Foundation presents four performances of Darboven’s musical compositions for double bass. Completed in 1984, Wunschkonzert is both a large-scale visual installation and a four-part musical score for double bass, featuring Opus 17A, Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. Opus 17A was first presented at the 1996 opening of Cultural History 1880–1983 at Dia Center for the Arts. In addition to Opus 17A, Robert Black, who performed the work in 1996, performs the three companion pieces—Opus 17B, Opus 18A, and Opus 18B. All four concerts take place within the installation at Dia:Chelsea to allow visitors to experience a live performance of Darboven’s musical work within the all-encompassing visual impact of her installation. Robert BlackRobert Black is a musician and composer for the solo double bass who collaborates with actors, artists, composers, dancers, musicians, and technophiles. He is a founding and current member of the musical group Bang on a Can All-Stars. Current projects include a Philip Glass commission for a seven-movement solo partita, which includes recited poetry by seven New York-based musicians and poets, and Possessed, a series of solo improvisatory performances in Utah’s rugged landscape. His CD recordings include State of the Bass (O. O. Discs, 1994), Christian Wolff: Look She Said (Complete Works for Bass) (Mode Records, 2002), Giacinto Scelsi: The Works for Double Bass (Mode Records, 2008), and Modern American Bass (New World Records, 2011), in addition to many recordings for Bang on a Can All-Stars (Cantaloupe Records).
