Founded on the rag-tag instrumentation of Igor Stravinsky's L'Histoire du Soldat, New York-based Exceptet is an ensemble with "vast emotional range and onomatopoetic charm" (I Care If You Listen) dedicated to commissioning today’s most compelling emerging composers. The nascent group has commissioned new works from Scott Wollschleger, Ben Brody, Matt Evans, Brendon Randall-Myers, Fay Kueen Wang, Alex Weiser, Fjola Evans, Brooks Frederickson, Paul Kerekes, Brian Petuch, and Eric Shanfield. Fresh off performances at the Ecstatic Music Festival in New York and The Times Two Series in Boston, Exceptet heads to 1 Rivington to perform music by Finola Merivale and Scott Wollschleger, as well as a smattering of acclaimed previous commissions.
