Vinko Globokar

Now in his mid 80s, Vinko Globokar began his career as the trombonist of choice for the 1960’s European avant garde.  He became known, both as a player and a composer, for his innate dramatic flair, blurring the boundary between music and theater. His piece Toucher, performed here by the iconic percussionist Steven Schick, is both quirky and demanding with Steven narrating the story of Galileo Galilei, as depicted in Bertolt Brecht’s play Life of Galileo while playing sounds to match each syllable.
