Also on the program are Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Pale as Centuries, Samson Kar-Fai Young’s Night Song, and Judd Greenstein’s Change Triology.
“NOW… imports a catchy inflection to classical forms… Striking a balance between the old and the new has rarely sounded this good.” –Newsweek
With a unique instrumentation of flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass, and piano, the ensemble brings a fresh sound and a new perspective to the classical tradition, infused with the musical influences that reflect the diverse backgrounds of its members.
