Note from David Yang: Ensemble Epomeo 2007-2017
David Yang reflects on 10 years with a string trio
This concert is in a private home and the opportunity to sit so close to the performer is a unique experience; tickets sell out quickly (on sale in February). The performance will also feature a pre-concert interview with the artist.
Here is a profile of Michael from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center:
After the spring recital, summer is not far behind. As usual, the music will be a balance of the beautiful (Bach, Mozart), familiar (Ravel, Shostakovich), edgy (Bartok), and other-worldy (Dutilleux). We also have an exciting commission by Robert Bradshaw titled “A Day in the Life of Newburyport” (more on that in a later post). Following the cue of the world premiere, we’ll be playing in more locations around town than ever before. Indeed, during a week and a half in mid-August we’ll be ubiquitous and you’ll have to go out of your way to avoid running into the visiting artists around town in unexpected places.
David Yang, Artistic Director
We couldn’t bring the beauty of chamber music to our community without the support of area businesses, cultural commissions, foundations and, especially you. Please consider Newburyport Chamber Music Festival in your charitable giving. Your support makes it all possible.Thank you!
October update from one our 2018 artists and preview of Winter Baroque 2018
With Jay Reise’s retirement concert at the University of Pennsylvania coming up in a few days, I thought this would be a good time to look back at one of the most extraordinary pieces I have ever commissioned. Jay was Newburyport Chamber Music Festival’s composer-in-residence in 2015. Based on a Japanese folk tale with Rip van Winkle overtones, “The Gift to Urashima Tarō” was the result of a collaboration between NCMF and EXIT Dance.
