Past Event Sound Series: Da Capo Chamber Players

Five people are in different positions around a jungle gym in a park. One of them is holding a cello.

The Da Capo Chamber Players have been hailed by The New Yorker as a “distinguished ensemble…at the center of the New York new-music scene for forty-five years” (May 2016). Winner of the Naumburg Chamber Music Award early in its trajectory (1973), the ensemble is about to enter its 50th season. It is a five-member “Pierrot” ensemble (flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano). The internationally acclaimed group has worked closely with today’s most respected composers, building a heritage of present-day American chamber music drawn from an enormous spectrum of styles.

Known for their unique and dedicated attention to every work, the Da Capo Chamber Players dynamic performances are consistent with the highest musical standards found in performances of traditional repertoire. A further very important goal is to bring exciting American music to other destinations around the world, and to present music of global cultures for American audiences.

This program provides a perfect snapshot of the Da Capo Chamber Players mission in action, presenting works composed for the ensemble by Tania León, Shulamit Ran, and Shen Yiwen along with music by Lei Liang, Eric Moe, and George Walker.
