This is a live recording of Ensemble Dal Niente performing “Mnemosis” by George Lewis on February 28, 2016 at Constellation in Chicago. Written for New York’s Talea Ensemble in 2012, this intensely colorful sextet “draws inspiration from two conceptions of time, history and memory in Western philosophy: Nietzsche’s notion of the eternal recurrence, and Wittgenstein’s conception of Unzeitlichkeit.” “Mnemosis” will be one of the four pieces by George Lewis on the proposed recording project.
