Dolce Suono Ensemble, the young, dynamic chamber music group from Philadelphia, a "stunning ensemble" (The Philadelphia Inquirer), makes its New York debut in a program featuring premieres by Shulamit Ran, Steven Stucky, Steven Mackey, and Richard Danielpour.
Soloists Lucy Shelton, soprano (Symphony Space All-Star) and Randall Scarlata, baritone join Dolce Suono Ensemble in the New York premiere of works commissioned by DSE as part of its "Mahler 100 / Schoenberg 60" project and the world premieres of our commissions by Shulamit Ran and Fang Man.
Dolce Suono Ensemble has been dazzling audiences and invigorating the music world since its founding by flutist and Artistic Director Mimi Stillman in 2005. DSE presents highly acclaimed chamber music concerts on its home series in Philadelphia, performs on tour, commissions important new works, makes recordings, and engages in educational outreach partnerships with Philadelphia public schools.
Dolce Suono Ensemble's active commissioning program produces 23 world premieres in seven seasons by some of today's most eminent composers: Shulamit Ran, Steven Stucky, Richard Danielpour, and Steven Mackey, with additional guest composers including George Crumb, Jennifer Higdon, and Ned Rorem. DSE also commissions emerging composers, including works by rising stars Benjamin C.S. Boyle, Jeremy Gill, David Ludwig, Fang Man, and Stratis Minakakis.
