Anthony Cheung's "Lyra" at the Cleveland Orchestra

Having recently "built a bridge to Beethoven" with the premiere of his new work "Elective Memory" by Jennifer KohAnthony Cheung will see another performance of a Beethoven-inspired work: Lyra, which takes a cue from Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto, at The Cleveland Orchestra. Cheung, who was named the Cleveland Orchestra's Young Composer Fellow for the 2016-17 season, is in the process of composing a new orchestral work to be premiered in that season; in the meantime, he oversees an encore performance of Lyra, which was commissioned by the New York Philharmonic with assistance from veteran composer Henri Dutilleux.

The Cleveland Classical blog has published a thorough preview of the performance, and Cleveland.com has published a slideshow previewing the work. Listen to the New York Philharmonic's premiere performance here, and check out a performance of Cheung's vis-à-vis, performed by Ensemble Linea, below:

Two New Commissions for Alex Mincek

Alex Mincek was awarded two commissions in September: a Barlow Endowment Commission for a new percussion trio for Line Upon Percussion, and the French Commission of the State for a large ensemble piece for Ensemble Linea. 

Alex's award from the Barlow Endowment will allow him to create a new work for Adam Bedell, Matthew Teodori, and Cullen Faulk, who make up Line Upon Line Percussion, hailed as "the premiere new music percussion ensemble in Texas" by The Austinist. We think they'll be a great fit for Mincek's work, as evidenced by some of their past performances: 

We're equally excited about Mincek's new work for Ensemble Linea, who have performed his music in the past; here they are playing poco a poco, available on PSNY: 

And coming up in NYC, cellist Mariel Roberts premieres Mincek's flutter for solo cello on September 26th, 2012, and the work will be available for sale immediately after the performance. Be sure to stop by the concert, presented by Issue Project Room, which takes place at Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral in Brooklyn Heights.
