Weill Recital Hall
“The new face of classical music for New York … these performers have the musical goods,” said The New York Times of Ensemble ACJW. ACJW’s fresh and open-minded approach to programming and performing is showcased in this concert that includes a new work by Meredith Monk commissioned by Carnegie Hall and Ravel’s Piano Trio. An intoxicating piece, Ravel’s Trio delights with its Basque folk rhythms and Baroque-influenced third movement.

This concert is part of Salon Encores. The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
