Talea Ensemble Performs Works by Di Castri, Grisey and Haas
Reid Hall | 4, rue de Chevreuse 75006 Paris
Free and Open to the Public

Members of the wide-ranging Talea Ensemble (James Baker, conductor) will perform searching, exploratory works for chamber ensemble by Grisey, Di Castri, and Haas.

Program:

Gérard Grisey: Talea (1986)
Zosha Di Castri: La forma dello spazio (2010)
Georg Friedrich Haas: new work

Recipients of the 2014 Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, Talea Ensemble has brought to life more than 30 commissions of major new works since it was founded in 2008. Partnering with institutions like the Austrian Cultural Forum or the French American Cultural Exchange, Talea has helped introduce NYC audiences to important works of such esteemed composers as Pierre Boulez, Georg Friedrich Haas, Beat Furrer, Pierluigi Billone, or Georges Aperghis.

Praised for their “verve and immaculate virtuosity” by the Washington Post, the Talea Ensemble is sought after both in the U.S. and Europe for its range, precision, risk-taking, and superior performance quality. Recent festival engagements include performances at Lincoln Center Festival, Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt, the Fromm Concerts at Harvard University, Warsaw Autumn Festival, Wien Modern, Chicago’s Contempo series, Royaumont Voix Nouvelles, Vancouver New Music, and many others. Talea’s recordings have been distributed worldwide on the Wergo, Gravina Musica, Tzadik, Innova, and New World Records labels, and been radio-broadcast on ORF (Austria), HRF (Germany), and WQXR’s Q2. Talea assumes an ongoing role in supporting a new generation of composers, and has undertaken residencies in music departments at Columbia, Harvard, Stanford, Cornell, New York University, and many others.
