Ensemble Pamplemousse Midwest Tour
June 26, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Ensemble Pamplemousse presents recent works by and for Pamplemousse. In keeping with Pamplemousse tradition, the works run the gamut of contemporary American music and its commentary- Andrew Greenwald’s hyper hippie complexity; Natacha Diels’ intently distracted focus on performance gestures; Bryan Jacobs‘ aggressive electroacoustic virtuosity; Dave Broome’s protracted elaboration of dark pop humor; and Jessie Marino’s frantic character development and devolution.
Together, the five works on the program describe the broad reach of American experimental music and provide a rigorous overview of Ensemble Pamplemousse’s approach to the current contemporary music scene.
“Silence is an important ingredient of most [of these] compositions, but also detailed complexity, short runs of hyper action, and also– not to forget – a sense of humor. The playing is virtuoso and inspired. All together fantastic playful modern chamber music full of magic and wit.”
