For this concert, the group is interpreting "early" in broader ways than the common definition of Early Music. In some cases they are early works in a composer's output;  in the case of Lizee's Death to Kosmische, it's a reference to early electronic music  - and the group plays some rudimentary electronic instruments like Stylophones in the piece.  "Early" can also refer to a different mode of human existence, as in the traditional works programmed.
