Ensemble Signal returns for June in Buffalo 2013

Ensemble Signal 
We’re looking forward to Ensemble Signal joining us for June in Buffalo 2013 – we just recently enjoyed hosting them for the world premiere of David Felder’s recent Koussevitsky commission Les Quatre Temps Cardinaux, where they assembled an orchestra of 35 musicians and were joined by soprano Laura Aikin, bass-baritone Ethan Herschenfeld, and 12 channels of electronics. Check out more on the premiere from our friends at the Buffalo NewsArtvoice, and Sequenza21.

More recently, Signal celebrated the release of their Helmut Lachenmann DVD on Mode Records, which features a performance of Zwei Gefühle with Lachenmann himself, which they performed here at Slee Hall back in 2010. Other recent projects of Signal’s include a staged production of the NY Premiere of Charles Wuorinen’s It Happens Like This at the Guggenheim Museum, performing the music of Brian Ferneyhough at The Tanglewood Festival of Comtemporary Music, and the recent premiere of Señales by Hilda Paredes, written for Signal and Irvine Arditti.

Signal will be rehearsing and performing the works of June in Buffalo composer participants on June 4th, and on June 8th they will offer a concert of June in Buffalo faculty composers, including Brian Ferneyhough’s Terrain (1992), Charles Wuorinen’s Big Spinoff (2011), Augusta Read Thomas’ Carillon Sky (2005), and Yehudi Wyner’s Passage (1983). Brad Lubman will be wielding the baton and will be joined by Irvine Arditti on violin and Kenneth Radnofsky on saxophone.
