Adventurous programming and virtuoso performances are hallmarks of this London-based chamber collective, the resident Ensemble of London's Wigmore Hall. They have recorded prodigiously, with nearly 90 CDs of music from Mozart to Dave Matthews, and will soon release a collection of chamber works by Czech composers incarcerated in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. They have also, quite notably, premiered more than 270 new works, 170 of which they've commissioned! Presented in collaboration with Princeton's Music Department, the Nash musicians will premiere a works by graduate student Viet Cuong, written expressly for them. As a result, you will have the rare opportunity to see and hear the creative process that brings a new piece to life, while stealing a glimpse of one of the country's next great composers.
