About the Concert

Meet the composers, performers, and artistic director Andrew Cyr in an interactive chamber music concert involving Metropolis Ensemble's featured composers for our spring season: Timothy Andres and Anna Clyne, and David Bruce.

Metropolis Ensemble will present the New York premiere of Timo Andres' piano quartet I found it by the sea, paired with Brahms' masterwork in the genre, Op. 25. Inspired by this work, Andres sets an original Brahms theme as a "trope" or echo of his own. Also featuring the world premiere of a new string quartet by Anna Clyne, Primula Vulgaris, and a new arrangement of songs by Renaissance composer John Dowland for recorder and string quartet from composer David Bruce.
