Josh Modney

"A new-music luminary"The New York Times, Allan Kozinn

Josh Modney, the NYC-based violinist, violist and improviser, is one of today's leading interpreters of contemporary concert music. His dedication to performing and developing the music of our time is evidenced by his long-term and close collaborations with composers on an extraordinary range of new work.
In addition to his work as a solo performer, Modney is violinist and Executive Director of the Wet Ink Ensemble, a vital collection of composers, improvisers, and interpreters committed to making adventurous music, and performs with Mivos Quartet and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). He has appeared at festivals and concert series across the world, presented hundreds of premieres, and worked closely with major figures including Mathias Spahlinger, Helmut Lachenmann, George Lewis, Christian Wolff, and Peter Ablinger.
Modney's repertoire encompasses a wide range, from J.S Bach to seminal late 20th-century works by Bernard Parmegiani, Luciano Berio and Kaija Saariaho, as well as new compositions by many of today’s most innovative composers. Deep collaboration with composers is a focus of Modney's activities, and he has developed new large-scale work with composers including Eric Wubbels, Sam Pluta, Rick Burkhardt, and Patrick Higgins as well as a many PSNY composers such as Kate Soper, Alex Mincek, and Scott Wollschleger, to name a few.
