"In The Chamber" with Kamran Ince, Pierre Jalbert, and Christopher Cerrone

Milwaukee's Present Music is known for its imaginative and bold concerts of new music in the Midwest, bringing music to new venues and new audiences for over thirty years. Their upcoming concert program, "In The Chamber", features performances of works by PSNY composers Kamran Ince, Pierre Jalbert, and Christopher Cerrone, among others. The concerts will be held in four different venues around Milwaukee, including the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts, the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, and the Villa Terrace Arts Museum. Highly anticipated by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal and WISN Arts Milwaukee, this concert is not to be missed. 

Ince, Jalbert, and Cerrone have all been commissioned by Present Music in the past, and the ensemble has worked closely with the composers to produce truly innovative chamber music. The program will include Ince's Curve, inspired by the spirituality of architectural spaces in Turkey, much like his works Domes and Arches. Jalbert's Trio for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano shows of Jalbert's signature compositional style of intensity, virtuosity, and passion. And Cerrone's Sonata for Violin and Piano retains the architectonic form of the classical sonata while exploring extended techniques, clashing timbres, and unity of expression. 

Check out some recordings of these works below! 

Ken Ueno and Katharina Rosenberger Join PSNY

We're delighted to announce two new members of the PSNY family: composers Katharina Rosenberger and Ken Ueno. Both based in California, Ken and Katharina are two composers who explore both new sonic possibilities and show deft and innovative approaches to organizing those sounds in their works for small ensembles. 

Here's a brief introduction to Ken, produced by Meet The Composer Studio (including some awesome footage of Ken's singing!)

And here's some footage of Katharina's video opera collaboration with Ivan Talijancic, "x - suite filante":

 Both of these composers' voices are incredibly strong, unique, and beautiful; we hope you take a look at the chamber works we've started with: Katharina's "scatter 2.0" and Ken's "...blood blossoms..."
