New Music New College Presents: Concert By Yarn/Wire
Saturday, October 5, 2019,8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Today’s composers often reinvent instrumental resources, finding new sonic possibilities in conventional instruments through innovative performance techniques and coloristic combinations. The instrumentation of Yarn/Wire—two pianos, two percussion—has offered composers a surprisingly rich palate for harmony and texture. For their NMNC debut, Yarn/Wire will perform two very different works: Klaus Lang’s shimmering and contemplative molten trees (2017) and Misato Mochizuki’s rousing Le monde des rondes et des carrés (2015).
Yarn/Wire is a NYC-based percussion and piano quartet comprised of Ian Antonio (percussion), Laura Barger(piano), Russell Greenberg (percussion), and Ning Yu (piano). This instrumental combination allows the ensemble flexibility to slip effortlessly between classics of the repertoire and more modern works that continue to forge new boundaries. Yarn/Wire is admired for the energy and precision they bring to vital performances of today’s most adventurous music.
Pre-concert talk begins at at 7:30 p.m. Admission: $15 (free for subscribers and students w/ ID). For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
