On Saturday, February 9 at 8:00pm, the cell theatre in Chelsea will present New York contemporary music collective ensemble mise-en in their second season concert. This free concert will include two US premieres of works by Danish composers as well as a world premiere and NY premiere by two American composers. The project was supported financially by DMFF (Dansk Music Publishers Association) through KODA’s Funds for cultural and social purposes.
This concert will showcase the works of five composers from three different continents. American composer Quinn Collins was commissioned to write a new work for chamber orchestra, entitled Summer Music, and Elliott Schwartz revised his 1966 Texture, specifically for mise-en. Additionally, the ensemble will perform international works rarely or never heard in the US: Siberian composer Edison Denisov‘s Five Studies for Bassoon Solo and US premieres of pieces by Danish composers Hans Abrahamsen and Bent Sørensen, the 2011 composer-in-residence at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. The ensemble and the cell are excited to offer such a diverse array of beautiful and thought-provoking sounds, with free admission, as well as a reception afterwards with beverages provided by the Brooklyn Brewery.
