Friday, January 5
Location: Palace Room, 9th Floor
Contemporary music and early music are two of the most vibrant genres in chamber music today. Where they intersect—new music written for old instruments—has produced a rich literature appealing to artists, audiences, and presenters alike. The panel will discuss the benefits to presenters of programming new works performed by early music ensembles; the elements of historical instruments that appeal to composers and audiences; and why early music is trending among contemporary listeners. Join us for a lively discussion!
