�Either/Or are making a splash with superb programming etched by some the city�s best musicians....this is a hot new group to watch."
Bruce Hodges of MusicWeb.UK
"Either/Or have taken on a startlingly ambitious program"
Alan Lockwood of New York Press
Either/Or present their first festival with two evenings of contemporary chamber music featuring two world premieres, a varied selection of cutting-edge New York Composers, and the rarely heard instrument; the cimbalom.
Thursday night (April 6), Either/Or continue their survey of the trios of Morton Feldman with a performance of his major work �Crippled Symmetry,� a concert-length work for flutes, piano/celesta, and percussion. The Friday night (April 7) program pairs two monolithic solo works, Elliott Sharp�s 2004 piano piece �Oligosono� and John Zorn�s 2000 percussion solo �Gri-Gri�. with the seldom-heard cimbalom duo miniatures of Gy�rgy Kurt�g, Eight duets for violin & cimbalom, Op. 4, and Trei Pezzi for clarinet and cimbalom, Op.38, �and world premieres by New York composers Richard Carrick, �In Flow� for solo violin*,� and Daniel Felsenfeld, �First Scenes from Red Room� for violin and piano*.
Either/Or will feature performances by New York new music veterans Andrea Schultz on violin and Anthony Burr on clarinet,�Jane Rigler on flutes, and founders David Shively on percussion and cimbalom and Richard Carrick on piano and celeste.
Either/Or is a new music ensemble drawing its membership from a pool of active soloists in New York City.� Founded in 2004 by composer/pianist Richard Carrick and percussionist David Shively, Either/Or has already received rave reviews for its cutting-edge programming and performances.� E/O specializes in music for unconducted chamber ensembles.� Its programs focus on American experimental music, its influence on European composition, and the works of emerging composers.
