Crash into Autumn

Friday 30th September, 2011

There is a new generation of American composers that needs to be heard! Crash Ensemble will act as the mouthpiece for some of the most exciting music being produced across the Atlantic, in its YOUNG AMERICANS programme on November 25th.

This diverse concert will include fresh and exciting pieces by dynamic and accomplished composers including:
Sean Friar, whose 'Velvet Hammer' has been nominated for this year's Gaudeamus Prize...;
Timothy Andres, who Alex Ross says “achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams";
Missy Mazzoli, 'Brooklyn's post-millenial Mozart' (Time Out NY);
and Ken Ueno, winner of the 2010-2011 Berlin Prize, whose music pushes the boundaries of perception and whose influences range from Tuvan throat-singing and Heavy Metal subtone vocals to Japanese traditional music.

We are also very excited to be performing three pieces, including the WORLD PREMIERE of a commission written especially for Crash Ensemble by the staggeringly successful, NICO MUHLY.
