Mario Diaz de Leon Premieres "Sacrament" with Talea Ensemble

New York's Talea Ensemble, co-directed by PSNY composer Anthony Cheung, will premiere a new work by fellow PSNY composer Mario Diaz de Leon, entitled Sacrament, at National Sawdust on February 17th. Commissioned by Talea, Sacrament is scored for ensemble and electronics, bringing Diaz de Leon's signature fire and intensity to a concert program that also includes premieres by Jason Eckhardt and Joshua Fineberg. Diaz de Leon and Talea have worked together before: they commissioned his 2013 work The Chapel Abyss, and performed Trembling Time II with the Cairn String Trio. Check out that performance below. 

Anthony Cheung in Residency at 113 Composers Collective

On February 4th and 5th, Minneapolis' 113 Composers Collective hosts two performances by the Chicago-based Fonema Consort, featuring works by Anthony Cheung, James Dillon, Bethany Younge, and more. Before the concerts, which take place at the University of Minnesota's Ted Mann Concert Hall and St. Paul's Studio Z, Anthony Cheung will give a colloquium at UMN's Feguson Hall. (Note well that Cheung's contribution to the program is a work entitled après une lecture, in addition to his classic Roundabouts.) Cheung and the Fonema Consort represent two dynamic examples of Chicago's vibrant new music community, which has recently been growing with the arrivals of Alex Mincek and Sam Pluta. Check out movement 2 of Cheung's Roundabouts below: 

Ensemble Dal Niente Premieres New Work by Anthony Cheung

Anthony Cheung is a composer with deep roots in both New York and Chicago. In one city he studied and still co-directs the Talea Ensemble, and in the other has been composing and teaching at the University of Chicago. Three members of Ensemble Dal Niente, one of Chicago's most dynamic new music ensembles, brings Cheung's music back to New York for an evening of works that bridge these two cities, featuring works for solo instruments and ensemble that travel between simplicity and virtuosity, meditation and play. 

On January 23rd at Spectrum NYC, flutist Emma Hospelhorn, oboist Andrew Nogal, and clarinetist Katie Schoepflin perform works by Cheung and several other composers based in Chicago and elsewhere. The instrumentalists will begin with solo works, including Cheung's Après une lecture for solo oboe, Toshio Hosokawa's Vertical Song I for solo flute, and Pierce Gradone'sAutomaton for solo bass, before moving on to ensemble works by Alex Temple, Carola Bauckholt, and Joël-François Durand. Check out Bauckholt's Zopf below.
