Béla Fleck returns to Clowes for the world premiere of a piece specially commissioned for the 50th anniversary of Clowes. Béla Fleck, famously named after Béla Bartók, Anton Webern and Leos Janácek, is stretching the boundaries of classical music. Having worked in bluegrass, country, jazz and world music, Béla released “Perpetual Motion,” in 2001, a classical recording that featured Edgar Meyer, Joshua Bell, Chris Thile and Evelyn Glennie among others. It went on to win two Grammy Awards. Béla now brings a brand new work “Banjo Quintet” performed with Brooklyn Rider.
