Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space
The Music of Now
Cadillac Moon Ensemble presents an exciting evening of world premieres commissioned by the group. There will be new works by: Lukas Ligeti, Timothy Andres, Ruben Naeff, and Conrad Winslow, along with a CME classic by Shawn Allison recently recorded by the group for their new CD, which will be released later this year.
Cadillac Moon Ensemble commissions and premiers many works from talented emerging composers, including seventeen premieres this season. The group's first full CD, recorded in September, will soon be released on the New Dynamic Records label. CME can also be heard on Innova Records with the music of Zack Browning. Other 2011-2012 season highlights will include: a residency at Indiana University Southeast, collaborations with Blind Ear Music and Random Access Music, and planned commissions by Lukas Ligeti, Timo Andres, Caleb Burhans, and Ruben Naeff.
Recent commissions include works by Angélica Negrón, David Claman, Amy Beth Kirsten, Zack Browning and Anna Mikhailova. CME has also received funding from the American Composers Forum's Encore Program to perform Shawn Allison's composition, Towards the Flame. Cadillac Moon Ensemble has performed on Kathleen Supové's Music With a View series, the Trinity Church Wall Street Concerts at One, the Vox Novus Composer's Voice series, and at multiple clubs, museums, churches, and universities. The quartet has also collaborated with Ethos Percussion Group, TRANSIT, Sospiro Winds, and Iktus Percussion.
With its unique combination of flute, violin, cello, and percussion, Cadillac Moon Ensemble is dedicated to retaining the intimacy and artistry of traditional chamber music, while expanding its palette of sonic possibilities. The group was formed in 2007 and is focused on commissioning new works and developing integral relationships with emerging composers, inspiring and challenging them to write for this new combination. The group strives to strongly connect with audiences, and communicate new repertoire through varied, diverse programming.
