Ensemble SurPlus was founded in 1992 by the eminent pianist and conductor James Avery (1937–2009). The ensemble performs chamber music ranging from duos to large instrumental combinations. Its primary objective is to give new or unknown works an optimal performance, regardless of compositional style or technical and intellectual demands. The ensemble has also collaborated closely with the Experimental Studio of the German Radio (SWR). Numerous CD productions and recordings (Ferneyhough, Clark, Spahlinger, Mahnkopf, Wolpe with Heinz Holliger) document the ensemble’s great versatility.
Free parking is available in The Warhol lot.
This event is co-presented with the Music on the Edge series of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Music.
