As Gustav Mahler wrote, "In its beginnings, music was merely chamber music, meant to be listened to in a small space by a small audience." On April 25th at 7pm, Composers Concordance ("enterprising new music organization" -NYTimes) presents an eclectic program of contemporary chamber music premieres. Featured composers include Dave Soldier ("resolutely uninterested in stylistic limits" -NYTimes), Gene Pritsker ("audacious…multitalented" -NYTimes), Dan Cooper ("especially fascinating" - American Record Guide), Evan Hause ("particularly compelling" - NYTimes), Leo Kraft ("beautiful" - NYTimes), Frank J. Oteri ("passionate" - San Francsico Chronicle), and Raul Quines ("highly imaginative" - Sir Georg Solti). 

Featured performers include flutist Valerie Coleman (of the Grammy-nominated Imani Winds), clarinetist Michiyo Suzuki (of the Grammy-nominated Absolute Ensemble), as well as the intrepid violinists Lynn Bechtold, Mioi Takeda, and Yibin Li, renowned cellist Michael Midlarsky, and the exceptional pianist Dimitri Dover. Don't miss this fun chamber music event, plus a reception, at the Turtle Bay Music School's Richmond Room (244 East 52nd St).
