with Suzanne Farrin, ondes Martenot

The International Contemporary Ensemble returns to the Library with a concert of new and recent works by vibrant composers on the scene, including Thorvaldsdottir, Fure and Farrin, whose new commission from the Library and ICE will receive its regional premiere. Farrin is also an accomplished ondist, and she will perform alongside the musicians of ICE in several works featuring the ondes Martenot—a fantastic early electronic cousin of the Theremin—including her own new work and a work for ondes Martenot and piano by Olivier Messiaen, put together posthumously by his widow Yvonne Loriod. The program finishes with Gubaidulina’s classic ensemble work from 1971, Concordanza.
