Ecce Ensemble to Perform at Brandeis & DiMenna Center, 5/1 & 5/15
Culminating what has been a banner year for the Ecce Ensemble, the group, headed by composer John Aylward, will perform world premieres by Yu-Hui Chang and Schuyler Tsuda (Barlow Commission). Also featured will be works by Ge?rard Grisey, Mark Andre, Liza Lim and emerging composers, Jose? Manuel Serrano and Colin Tucker, whose works were selected from an international call for scores. Having just completed spring residencies at New England Conservatory and the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC), the Ecce Ensemble is primed for two spectacular performances on May 1st at Brandeis University and May 15th at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.
Carefully curated by directors John Aylward and Jay Lin, these concerts will showcase the ensemble's trademarks: expert interpretations of today's masterworks and a ceaseless advocacy for emerging voices. Both performances will precede Ecce's departure to Europe for its annual summer residency at the Etchings Festival in France, where it will premiere 12 new works by young emerging composers. Both Aylward and Lin, composers whose music bridges the same European/American spectrum of the ensemble's repertory, will also have works on the program.
