Ensemble Connect at Carnegie Hall
Monday October 30, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Called “the new face of classical music for New York” by The New York Times, Ensemble Connect invites audiences into a boundless world of classical music that spans continents and centuries. In this season’s first performance, Ensemble Connect fellows perform Bartók’s Contrasts, a virtuosic piece commissioned by Benny Goodman and violinist Joseph Szigeti. They also perform the New York premiere of a Carnegie Hall–commissioned work by inti figgis-vizueta, a rising composer with a “fertile imagination for instrumental combinations and advanced playing techniques” (New York Classical Review), for whom “there continues to be nothing but promise” (The New York Times).
Program to include:
INTI FIGGIS-VIZUETA New Work (NY Premiere, commissioned by Carnegie Hall)
BARTÓK Contrasts for Violin, Clarinet, and Piano
