The Dal Niente Wind Trio (Emma Hospelhorn, Andy Nogal, and Katie Schoepflin) is thrilled to premiere Undersea, a new work for piccolo, English horn, and bass clarinet by composer Victoria Cheah, as part of a varied concert that features the full array of sounds available to contemporary woodwind players, from kaleidoscopic quarter tones, to ethereal trills, to jazzy pizzicatos. The flute, clarinet, and oboe blend together in wildly different sonic palettes that alternately sing, squeak, and pizzicato, with sounds that range from the delicate to the bombastic.
It's time for Dal Niente's 2019 Party! This year's Party features the Chicago premiere of Anthony Cheung's new work, co-commissioned with the L.A. Philharmonic, as well as works by Erin Gee, Mario Davidovsky, and Igor Santos. As per usual, there will be food, drinks, and good times.
