Our season 3 finale presents premieres of three pieces written for the same ensemble. Last season, we experienced the “Octandre” ensemble filtered through the lens of Ferneyhough with an added soloist. For this concert, a new concerto has been composed, replacing the violin soloist with the incredible cellist Ashley Walters, and adding a tuba to further warp the personality of this instrumentation. Context for the premieres is offered by two older works by Jason Eckardt and Georges Aperghis, both of whom can create all of the tension and surprise of an ensemble with only one or two performers.
For a glimpse into the three new works on this concert, read the notes on subterranean tracings.
