Radiohead fanatics not busying themselves with YouTube clips of Thom Yorke's recent appearance at L.A.'s Low End Theory will undoubtedly flock this weekend to the American premiere of Jonny Greenwood's "Doghouse", a typically foreboding orchestral piece commissioned last year by the BBC. It's one part of the latest concert in the classical-outreach Wordless Music series. Tonight and Saturday, "Doghouse" will be paired with György Ligeti's "Chamber Concerto" and "Heroes", Philip Glass's symphonic meditation on the work of his pals David Bowie and Brian Eno. Scowlers and chin-strokers, this you cannot afford to miss.
