Guest Artists: Unheard-Of Ensemble
Ford Fourqurean (clarinet), Matheus Souza (violin), So Sugiyama_(cello), and Daniel Anastasio (piano) form the core of Unheard-of//Ensemble, a contemporary chamber ensemble dedicated to the development and performance of new music by living composers. Unheard-of//Ensemble collaborates with composers at the forefront of modern music to create projects that connect with new, diverse audiences. Based in New York City, the group is committed to the idea that new music belongs in every community and implements this mission through touring, outreach, and a social media presence to connect with both audiences and young artists throughout the country, focusing specifically on bringing new music to locations generally out of reach for most new music organizations. Unheard-of//Ensemble will be performing on a tour of the Midwest from February 26th through March 5th, visiting universities and institutions to present their_third all-premieres program. The concert will feature new works for clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, examining the modern voice of Messiaen quartet instrumentation, with works by Meg Schedel, Erin Rogers, Reiko Fueting, Nathan Hudson, Michael Lanci, Kevin Laskey, Nickitas Demos, and Stephen Cabell.
