BERIO IN NYC: SEQUENZAS AND CHEMINS IV
“Sequenzas” and “Chemins IV” and other works performed by Ensemble mise-en in the first of two concerts featuring works composed by Luciano Berio when he lived in New York City (1965-1972).
Ensemble mise-en is an innovative and versatile New York-based contemporary music collective led by composer Moon Young Ha. With over fifteen of New York’s most talented musicians, our multi-national personnel strive to bring a repertoire of challenging, new sounds to diverse audiences. The ensemble wishes to impart an experience that is simultaneously multi-cultural, intellectually stimulating, and aesthetically pleasing (“mee” in Korean means “beauty”, and “zahn” means “to decorate”), promoting large-scale composition projects and intense performances of contemporary music with programs featuring the works of many established and budding composers alike.
