counter)induction contemplates the simultaneity of the historical and the contemporary in a concert of music emphatically modern yet profoundly connected to the past.
Featuring works by Brittany J. Green, Mark Rimple, Mario Davidovsky, Ryan Streber and Kyle Bartlett, the concert posits a deep view of the contemporary, of the diversity of humanisms: the meditative suspensions of the medieval mass, the heroic virtuosity of Romanticism, the courtly elegance of the Renaissance court, and a meditation on the severity and elegance of the first music of the Paleolithic.
Also presented will be works and performances by Corcoran professors Douglas Boyce and Ning Yu.
Now in its 20th year of virtuosic performances and daring programming, the composer/performer collective counter)induction is an established force of excellence in contemporary music. Hailed by The New York Times for its “fiery ensemble virtuosity” and for its “first-rate performances” by The Washington Post, it has given critically acclaimed performances at Miller Theatre, Merkin Concert Hall and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society.
