The internationally-acclaimed Relâche Ensemble will present a concert of new music by University of Virginia composers on Tuesday, January 27th at 8:00 P.M. in Old Cabell Hall Auditorium. The free performance will feature the premiere of works written for the ensemble by the university’s doctoral music students.

The Relâche Ensemble is dedicated to the commissioning and presentation of new and innovative music. Since their establishment in 1977, the ensemble has performed over 550 concerts around the globe and boasts an impressive repertoire of more than 400 works. Of their performance, the New York Times says, “Few contemporary music ensembles play with the dedication, high spirits and near-telepathic sense of teamwork that characterize Relâche.”

Relâche is comprised of eight musicians who command everything from strings to woodwinds to percussion. The premiered works will stretch the limits of the instrumentation to create new and exciting sounds. The University of Virginia Arts Council and the McIntire Department of Music are pleased to share the talents of the Relâche Ensemble and University of Virginia composers with the Charlottesville community

Supported by the University of Virginia Council for the Arts.
