Argento Ensemble Features Hannah Lash and Erin Gee in New Series

New York's Argento Chamber Ensemble, conducted by Michele Galante, is featuring works by Hannah Lash and Erin Gee in a new concert series at the Austrian Cultural Forum, alongside music by other American and Viennese composers. Running weekly on Fridays and Sundays, the new series kicked off on May 2nd with the world premiere of Erin Gee's Mouthpiece XIXb for solo voice and ensemble. 

Check out an excerpt from Erin Gee's Mouthpiece: Segment of the 4th Letter here: 

On May 9th, audiences will hear Hannah Lash's Friction, Pressure, Impact, for cello and piano, which was premiered by the duo TwoSense, with cellist Lisa Moore and cellist Ashley Bathgate. Through its three movements, Friction, Pressure, Impact explores the idea of musical metabolism. Have a listen to an excerpt below:

And if the music isn't incentive enough, custom ales and lagers will be provided by Brooklyn's BrewHeister after the performances, along with discussions with the performers and composers. 

Beat Furrer in New York

Beat Furrer, the Swiss composer and founder of Klangforum Wien, has just ended a week-long residency in New York with the Talea Ensemble. The residency included lectures, open rehearsals, and several concerts, including a non-staged performance of Furrer's opera, FAMA, which included the vocal ensemble Ekmeles, at the Bohemian National Hall. The week also included the US premiere of Furrer's 2011 Studie für Klavier, available from PSNY, on May 14th at the Austrian Cultural Forum. We're excited to be able to make available several of Furrer's works, which are notoriously difficult to get a hold of. In addition to the Studie für Klavier, Furrer's a due for violin and piano, presto for flute and piano, and Spur for string quartet and piano are all available for download. 

Late Summer News from Keeril Makan, Annie Gosfield, and Pierre Jalbert

The dog days of summer are upon us, though you wouldn't know it from the activities of our PSNY composers! Annie Gosfield has just released her fourth album on John Zorn's Tzadik label, entitled Almost Truths and Open Deceptions. New York City audiences will be able to hear new works from the album, as well as other works by Gosfield, performed on September 14th at the Bohemian National Hall at the Czech Center, as a part of the Austrian Cultural Forum's annual Moving Sounds Festival. For those unfamiliar with Gosfield's music, here's a clip of the MIVOS Quartet performing The Blue Horse Walks on the Horizon, available on PSNY:

On the other side of the Atlantic, BBC Radio 3 has recently broadcast two works by Keeril Makan on Max Reinhardt's Late Junction show: The Noise Between Thoughts and Resonance Alloy, both available on PSNY. Sample the beautiful recording of Resonance Alloy here: 

Finishing up this week's news, we have recently published Pierre Jalbert's The Invention of the Saxophone on a poem by Billy Collins, for alto saxophone, percussion, and optional narrator. Listen to a sample of the piece here:
