Uncertainty of fate festival

What a roller coaster ride these last 3 years have been! We produced a lot of content, with streaming and/or video productions for most of the festivals and organizations with which we were involved, all over the world. One of the projects we've been most proud of during this time was the "Uncertainty of Fate" Festival, held online in May 2021. Over 5 days,  37 new commissions from established as well as emerging composers and activists were performed, interwoven with a few existing works composed earlier, but quite relevant. 51 composers in all, 59 pieces, performed by musicians of all ages, dancers, and writers. The written pieces were contributed by clinicians from the VA New England Healthcare System; healthcare professionals working on the front lines during the pandemic. We also had panel discussions on healing in the arts and activating and agitating for systemic change, as well as guest artist masterclasses.   Click on links in the program book to access some of the concerts and discussions, or visit our YouTube channels of both the duo and QuartetES



It's finally here!  Our long-awaited 4th CD, featuring the complete violin-viola duo music of Augusta Read Thomas, a never-before recorded duo of Bright Sheng, a new transcription of the haunting "Ciaconna in Memoria Giovanni Paolo II" by Krzysztof Penderecki, and a brand new work by up-and-coming Iranian composer Mani Mirzaee.  Shout out to Bradley Sayles, producer and Andy Bradley, engineer.
