Vijay Iyer and the Lutosławski Quartet Premiere New Work for Piano Quintet
Nov. 01, 2017
Vijay Iyer joins the Lutosławski Quartet for the world premiere of his new work for piano quintet on November 18. The premiere takes place in Wroclaw, Poland in conjunction with the Festival Jazztopad.
Last month, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra gave the world premiere performances of Iyer’s new work for chamber orchestra, Asunder. The piece explores possibilities of unity in the orchestra as a response to feelings of fracture in the world at large, working against fragmentation “to imagine unity anew.”
Earlier this season, ECM Records released a new album by the Vijay Iyer Sextet, Far From Over. The record constitutes Iyer's fifth release on the label since 2014.
