Momenta Plays NYU Composers
NYU Silver Center (31 Washington Pl., Room 220, Manhattan)
The critically acclaimed Momenta Quartet will present five new pieces by NYU Ph.D. composers Gordon Beeferman, Adele Fournet, Moon Young Ha, Friedrich Heinrich Kern, and Jue Wang. The pieces—four world premieres and one New York premiere, all written for Momenta—reflect each composer’s unique compositional interests, while exploring various unorthodox possibilities of staging, sonority, and collaboration. Momenta will be joined by electric guitarist Felipe Wurst and dancer-choreographer Stephanie Sleeper for an exciting and inventive musical experience.
