Open G Records, founded by the clarinetist Chris Grymes, is committed to producing music that is rooted in the classical tradition, but brings artists and their fans together in new and innovative ways.

Both of these nights at National Sawdust will feature the Pierre Boulez landmark Dialogue de L’ombre Double, performed by Scott Andrews, principal clarinet player of the St. Louis Symphony, and live engineered by Adam Abeshouse. Also performing in these concerts will be label artists including Grymes, Xiao-Dong Wang (violin), and Xak Bjerken (piano), playing works by Steve Reich, Steven Stucky, and Mario Davidovsky.
