Cancelled: Ensemble Connect

Tuesday, February 16, 2021 7:30 PM Weill Recital Hall
Ensemble Connect by Fadi Kheir
The adventurous young musicians of Ensemble Connect perform a Kaija Saariaho work newly commissioned by Carnegie Hall and rarely heard chamber music by Vaughan Williams. Saariaho is one the most inventive and inspiring composers of our day, and her music fascinates with its unusual instrumental textures and sense of mystery. Vaughan Williams’s Piano Quintet owes much of its inspiration to Romantic composers, particularly in its unfettered emotional power and melodic splendor.

Part of: Ensemble Connect
