Looking at everyone's year-end lists, we've been thinking a lot about where we've been over the past year and beyond. One of the most exciting things we get to do is commission and premiere new works. Over this month, we'd like to share with you a little about each these new works and the wonderful composers we've gotten to work with.
One of the first pieces we premiered as a duo was "Deus ex Machina" by @taliaamarkrim
Since premiering this at @brandeisuniversity
in 2016, we've performed this in recitals at @spoletofestivalusa, @c4newmusic, @spectrum_nyc, and more! Visit our website to watch the full performance!
We first met Talia at a "sing-for-your-supper" holiday party hosted by a local new music ensemble. We played a short Kurtag set (only movements we had memorized, since someone forgot the music...) and a few months later Talia reached out and suggested we work together! We are SO GLAD SHE DID 🥰🥰
We'll be back at the Slosberg Recital Hall at Brandeis on February 29, 2020 when we perform a recital with six brand new works by fantastic doctoral composers at Brandeis. We met with the composers back in October for a workshop and we can't wait to see how the pieces turn out!
