The New York based ensemble, Lunatics at Large will perform works from the ACA catalog by Elizabeth Austin, Eleanor Cory, Barbara Jazwinski, Dorothy Rudd Moore, Beth Wiemann, and Joan Tower. Performing at this concert will be Amelia Lukas, flute; Vasko Dukovski, clarinet; Arthur Moeller, violin; Jen Herman, viola; and Steven Beck, piano.
Hailed as "young, energetic, and finely polished" by the New York Times, LUNATICS AT LARGE is a dynamic New York City-based ensemble that was formed at Mannes College of Music in 2007. Through thematic, interdisciplinary performances in ensemble formations ranging from solo to the full septet and beyond, the group juxtaposes established masterpieces of the 20th century against more recent works. Lunatics at Large thus encourages listeners to hear similarities between works written decades apart and to consider recent compositions within the context of the evolution of classical music since 1900.
