Momenta QuartetNew York, NY
Momenta: the plural of momentum – four individuals in motion towards a common goal. This is the idea behind the Momenta Quartet, whose eclectic vision encompasses contemporary music of all aesthetic backgrounds. Hailed by the New York Times as a “forward-thinking quartet” with “intriguing programming,” Momenta has premiered over 150 works and collaborated with over 200 living composers. The annual Momenta Festival has been a fixture of New York musical life since 2015.
Eric Nathan: Four to One (2011)
Written for and dedicated to the Momenta Quartet, Four to One is inspired by the blazing colors and raw intensity of an autumnal sunset in upstate New York. The opening texture of the work reflects this image of the setting sun – an intense, fiery core illuminated by a halo of light. Recorded for Albany Records, 2015.
Wang Lu: Double Trance (2016)
Premiered at the Momenta Festival, September 29, 2016
